Tips from foursquare
Cheap, quality art supplies. If you get claustrophobic or are taller than 5'6" you may want to go to Pearl or Blick instead.
Best art supply store in NYC. especially the upstairs paper department.
Great shop. So many wonderful supplies and awesome staff.

If paper you seek, head straight up the stairs to the right of the register. Once inside the tiny space, snag a mini clipboard to jot down the numbers of the styles (they have thousands!) you like.
