Village Voice's Description
Those attracted to import CDs but turned off by the high prices should check the used stock at Book-Off, one of a string of Japanese businesses along a strip adjacent to the New York Public Library. The right wall of this brightly lit, immaculate store is dedicated to J-pop, and prices average $10 to $15 for a pristine shrink-wrapped product (about half of what these items would fetch new). Upstairs find books in English and used Japanese magazines selling for a pittance.
Tips from foursquare
Check out the $1 section in the back.
Check your used discs before buying. Staff will let you if you ask. It's saved me from slashed up TV show & movie DVDs.
Don't go to Kinokuniya for manga. It's cheaper here.
This place is fantastic, super nice, great stuff and they give you cash for your crap! Made 50 bucks ANDDDD freed a whole bookshelf!
Dolla dolla books, y'all.
