WATCH: Casa Amadeo, NYC’s OLDEST Latino Music Store

Earlier this year we published an article on Casa Amadeo and its legacy as NYC’s oldest Latino music store.

Today we’re happy to share this video done by Historic District Council highlighting this gem which is a living landmark and testament of resilience of our people of The Bronx.

In a neighborhood that is rapidly changing once again, this time not to disinvestment but through gentrification and developers building and not burning, it is increasingly important to document such historically and culturally significant spaces before they disappear.

We once used to think along the lines of “if” they disappear but now it’s just simply a matter of when.

Tell us what you think and please share this important video widely to keep the legacy of this place alive! Even better, stop by Casa Amadeo for yourself and support a local living landmark!

They’re located at 786 Prospect Avenue right at the 2 and 5 train station at Prospect.
