2 Bridges brings experimental music and art to Chinatown.

A new boutique record shop and exhibition space called 2 Bridges has opened at in Manhattan. Stocking new and used vinyl as well as cassettes tapes, books and art, 2 Bridges’s founder Simon Gabriel Greenberg says the shop is “putting music, art and books into conversation with each other, the way they are at someone’s house.”

A subject close to our hearts at The Vinyl Factory, Greenberg told RA: “There are a ton of musicians who make visual work along with their music practice, and visual artists who are acutely aware of and into music… so I thought a public space where those things were interacting made sense.”

The “leftfield and electronic” music selection spans house and techno 12-inches as well as free jazz, ambient music and rap, with Greenberg highlighting labels like Editions Mego and Diagonal among the offerings.

Read a short interview with the store here and visit in person at 75 East Broadway Suite 205 in Manhattan.
