Fodor's Review

The largest independent record store in the city stands opposite a church where George and Martha Washington once worshipped. If CDs and vinyl had been invented, you can bet the First Couple would have shopped here. It's easy to become immersed in one section of this very long, very narrow store only to look up and realize you're out of time but you still have reggae, British psychedelic, jazz, experimental, and garage to look through.
