New York Video has to be the best kept secret in NYC. I wouldn't have even known about it if a friend hadn't told me it existed when I was once again complaining about how Blockbuster stinks. Maybe because it's not located in a "cool" neighborhood it gets no attention. I've certainly never seen it written about in the Voice or Time Out New York. Film lovers should definately check this place out!

It took me a few minutes of browsing to realize what a true treasure this place is. It's not a big store, but it is crammed with the most comprehensive film collection I've ever come across. Every category I went through was just full of great films. They have stuff I didn't even know was available; from the mainstream to the most obscure. I immediately signed up to rent . It is so great to be able to wander around a store not knowing what you may come across. The employee working that day told me they've been at this location for 22 years. Obviously a lot of time to collect so much stuff.

Which brings me to the staff...I'd be remiss if I didn't mention that the people who work here are genuinely nice and knowledgeable. They never come off as corporate cutouts, but seem excited to be there and helpful. I really appreciate their enthusiasm and knowledge. It's a pleasure to see a group of people enjoy their jobs. ??And one more thing, on Tuesdays they have a 2 for 1 deal. What more can a girl ask for?

The staff are great. For example, I have a 4-year old son and I can ask them to pick out 10 movies that he'll like so we can bring them with us on vacation, and they gladly do it (and do a good job, too).

They also have a great selection and they know their stock - you can ask questions, or what movies are similar to ones you like, and they will help you find new favorites.

Prices are fair - no overpriced late fees. And they have a drop-off box.

I'm glad to have these guys right across the street from my building (Sutton House - 415 East 52nd Street).

Pros: Staff are knowledgable about movies

Cons: Requires purchase of "credits" to get delivery service

The best video store in New York City and maybe in the entire country, or even the world. No, I'm not exaggerating! Over 20,000 titles, friendly and super-knowledgeable staff, and they order everything for their stock of DVDs and VHS -- I mean EVERYthing. They've been around forever at this location (since early 1987 I think), which is not easy in their neighborhood; I don't even think Blockbuster managed to survive there. So you KNOW that N.Y. Video has the goods! (1st-time message.)

Terriffic store! They've really got it all. Really great rental specials (most notably the two-for-one tuesdays) keep me coming back. The knowledgeable staff are extremely helpful when it comes to finding that movie with that one guy who was in that thing with that actress that time. Definitely the best store in the neighborhood, if not the entire city.

The store is laid out in a non-traditional way. The rentals are wrapped up like records in sleeves. There is a great selection of both new releases and classics in the store. The interesting layout of store makes it nice to shop, freindly and helpful staff. The prices are decent.

I usually come here to look at the pre-viewed DVDs. They usually only have about 10 or less on sale - but they're on sale for $5 to $8 - which is good for a somewhat new release. They only have the bigger blockbusters, but a selection of even the older ones. Their adult movies selection is pretty big, I would think from the size of the backroom. I haven't been in there but I feel that if they took that out they could stock at least a few hundred more films.

Just wanted to say this must be the best damn video store in the whole world. I was stunned at the selection of films this store holds. Not only the obvious new releases but stuff I've never seen in any video store anywhere. They definately have the best selection of classic Hollywood films and foreign films of any video store I've ever been in.
