I grew up in NY and saw many camera stores come and go. These included the Camera Barn chain where I worked during the summers when I was in school, Willoughby-Peerless, Olden Camera, 32nd Street Camera Exchange, Minifilm, K&M, Spiratone in Manhattan and Flushing, Garden Camera, Competitive Camera, 47th Street Photo, Doi Camera, Wall Street Camera, Ken Hansen - when he had retail locations, Foto Cell - this store on 23rd Street on Manhattan had a fantastic collection of old cameras of almost every kind, Cambridge Camera. In my years in NJ I remember Clifton Camera, Gene Hacker and Teaneck Camera. The Gene Hacker location in Hackensack became an auto parts store and they moved to Englewood. That didn't last very long. I am lucky to be near Livingston Camera where I can get excellent C-41 processing and scanning/printing done. Unique Photo used to be in the next town over but is now a longer drive to Fairfield, NJ. Some of the cameras and other photo items I have collected have stickers in or on them from stores all over the country.
