Casa Amadeo Record Shop, A Place That Matters

casa amadeo latin music record shop new yorkCasa Amadeo Record Shop, at 786 Prospect Avenue in the Bronx, nominated by David Carp. It’s the oldest continuously run Latin music store in the city, established in 1941 as Casa Hernández by Victoria Hernández, whose brother Rafael was one of Latin America’s most famous composers. It was renamed when its current proprietor Mike Amadeo took it over in 1969. From top record company producers, to all-star musicians, to cognoscenti fans, people in the know have long relied on this little, old-fashioned store for their music and musical advice. The National Register of Historic Places recognized its importance by listing it in 2001.
  • Visit the store yourself (2 or 5 train to Prospect Ave.) or call 718.328.6896.
