As some of my Shore Fire colleagues are already aware of, I have not yet made the big move into NYC. Born & raised a Jersey boy, my residence is still in the Garden State, right outside of Princeton. While some folks might think I’m crazy for not packing up and moving to the city as soon as possible, NJ is near and dear to my heart. And one of the reasons I love it oh so much is because of my close proximity to the Princeton Record Exchange!
Located in the heart of Princeton, PREX (as all the cool locals call it) is a staple for anyone passing through town. You enter the store and are smacked with wall-to-wall shelving crammed full of CDs featuring an eclectic array of genres, eras and tastes. Their extensive record collection is also something to be admired.
I try to hit up PREX every few months, just to add some spice to my collection. On this trip I picked up some Modest Mouse & Sunny Day Real Estate. And while waiting in line to purchase, I found myself behind a fellow shopper who had an impeccable taste in music (who is definitly NOT my sister forced to pose for a photo):
So if you’re ever in the area, give me a call and I’ll take you to truly one of the happiest places on Earth (or at least in NJ).
