    Any Aviation shops in the NYC area ?

    Hi all. I am wondering if anybody knows of any stores in the city that sell models, dvd's , posters, pilot supplies ,scanners or anything aviation related. The only 2 places that I can think of are the red caboose hobby shop and the USS Intrepid museum gift shop.

    Does anyone know of any other places ?

    There is a pilot shop I think in Freeport or that may be Baldwin. Right off Atlantic Av. Not sure if they have models, Eric would know. A pilot shop at FRG as well

    If you don't have a car is it possible to get to Fairfield by public transportation ? It's more than 25 miles away from Manhattan.

    Rudy's Hobby and Art Shop in Astoria sells Gemini and Herpa models, and I've bought several from him.

    I recommend calling ahead to check hours though. He's closed on odd days.
