I miss going to the store I *think* on 32nd street? Or was it like 18th street around the block from old B&H?
Ooops, there goes my age....
The main shop was out in Flushing, and I only remember visiting that once, but I was a semi-regular at the Manhattan store when I was in my late teens. IIRC it was 31st or 32nd, between 6th and 7th, roughly across the street from Willoughbys, where I was a semi-regular customer as well.
Fred Spira passed away recently, and his son posted a note here in a thread on the subject. Search and you will find.
