Record Mart located in the Times Square subway station sadly announced that it has permanently closed due to the Coronavirus pandemic lockdown.
Record Mart was founded in 1958 and was the oldest surviving record store in Manhattan until it announced its closure this week. It was known for its great selection of Latin music and salsa records.
