Located at 13 Monroe Street, it is just a 3 block walk from Rutgers & Madison Sts. exit of the "East Broadway" stop of the reliable and easily accessible 'F' Train.
We are open 7 Days A Week: Monday thru Sunday : 12 Noon - 6pm
Come down and visit us!
(If your coming from uptown Manhattan, be at the front of the train; from Brooklyn be at the back of the train)
There are also nearby stations for the B, D, J, M, Z, and [just a couple of blocks south, not shown on map] the 4, 5, 6 trains!
If you're driving downtown on Bowery from our previous location at #342, you'd go three blocks past Canal [past Bayard, past Pell, and past Doyers - all on your right] to East Broadway which starts on your left, make the left, and make an immediate right onto Catherine St [which is linearly the continuation of Doyers on the east side of Bowery, but you cannot make a legal left there], go 3 blocks to Monroe, and make a left to #13 just off the corner.
Downtown Music Gallery Opened May 1991 [from the dregs of Manny's Lunch For Your Ears which closed that same month], and specializes in adventurous music. We carry compact discs and records, both new & used, music DVDs, and even some magazines, t-shirts, and books. The store is currently owned & run by Bruce Lee Gallanter and specializes in 'Downtown' improv music, Canterbury & other art-rock/progressive musics, as well as modern jazz, world music, klezmer, contemporary classical, electronic, psychedelic, and even a small bit of blues, folk, bluegrass, country and soul.
About 40% of our stock is vinyl and even some rare LPs which will be listed soon on our website. Want lists are welcome. We have an ongoing free music series at our store most Sundays at 6pm, so come visit when you can.
Best regards from our skeleton crew,
Bruce Lee Gallanter
