35s & 45s Guide to NYC Crate Digging

35s & 45s for Trippin
35s & 45s

35s & 45s was born, in part, to broaden the avenues outside of the mainstream gallery system, while sharing love of film photography and records. The mission of the first exhibition was to provide a space where these mediums could be celebrated by and for their community. It quickly became a large monthly gathering for creatives to network, share ideas and support analog. That original mission carries through still today, but exceeding expectations. Check out 35s & 45s' guide to the best places to find analog in NYC.
