'[OT]: NYC - electronics parts stores?'
2002\02\02@140423 by Jesse Lackey

Hello all,
I hope somebody out there can give me a few leads...  (pardon the pun) :)
After a several year hiatus I'm doing electronics work again, and now that
I'm in new york city I cannot find, of all things, electronics parts stores.
You know, where there are connectors and inductors and misc. common ICs and
wire and etc. etc.  There are many radio shacks ... all of which have a tiny

Oddly, the small town I moved here from 2 years ago (Ithaca) had a great

They say you can get anything in nyc... I have asked people and done web
searches, nothing.

Any assistance appreciated!

(anywhere in the 5 boroughs would be fine ... I'm not expecting a parts
store with $0.25c margins to be in Midtown).

Hi Jesse,
 You are just a few years too late (closer to 12).
 NYC used to abound with electronics stores. Canal St. in particular had
some wonderful surplus places. Alas, all gone now, sniff, replaced by
storefronts that sell car audio systems or counterfeit Rolex
watches.  There is a small counter at the back of the store at 260 Canal
St. (used to be a full blown electronics shop, Sylvan & Wellington), but
I'm afraid R.S. is the best you are going to get these days. Actually,
thankfully  R.S. exists.  They have saved my ass on several occasions, even
with their small selection.

For the most part these days, I just order everything from Digikey or
Mouser. At least Mouser has no minimum order.

 If you do find anyplace in your searches, then please share your discovery..
