    Alright, I know there's been a few threads on this already, but after digging through them, they seemed kind of a mess. Obviously, the major cities are really important, but if you know a real cool shop in some obscure town list anyways.

    We're not looking for the crap mall stores that might have a mag or two and some streaks or the run of the mill shop with nothing special, but rather real slick clothing, skate, toy, and gallery spots that are worth seeking out if you happen to make it to that city.

    Anyhow, please keep the format somewhat organized, and if you've visited the store yourself, please write a line or two about what they had that made it so slick, ie- product, interrier design, etc.

    if you can, please take some photos. (at least of the outside if they wont let you photograph the inside. also, if you can report back their full address and phone number, as well as a brief description of what they carry, etc... that would be swell.


    btw, are they the only store of this type in the area, or are there other noce shops around town?

    what is nice is alot of these stores are really close to each other
    for ex: lower east side...360,recon,reedspace, alife, and some more
    bway-lafe.. supreme, 555, djhondas, xlarge, vice, stackhouse,,

    everything is pretty close to each other which is really nice
