For anyone used to the logistical difficulties of being an engineer or musician in Manhattan, one of the most puzzling has been the lack of a major retail outlet downtown or anywhere near it. Now, with the opening of a new 30,000-square-foot Guitar Center on 25 West 14th Street (the retailer's new flagship superstore), there's a convenient downtown location to check out a huge selection of musical instruments and gear.

The new Manhattan location is the 120th Guitar Center store and also bears special significance, as that neighborhood has given rise to many famous music venues, such as the Academy of Music on East 14th Street. Guitar Center's pro audio department, located on the downstairs floor, provides an especially expansive place to become intimate with a wider range of gear than can typically be accommodated in a New York City retail environment.
