is there any way to pay for and download this song? Honestly it's better than the album version. Breaks my heart, every time.

2 star food, minimum hour delivery time, but they also refuse to take your email off their mailing list, no matter what.

Brought in a lens for a trade-in that I wasn't using much after purchasing it new elsewhere about 6 months beforehand. The camera guy looked at it, and claimed the lens was full of haze and fungus. I looked at it, with their flashlight, and the lens appeared in decent condition to me but they were ADAMANT that my lens was stored in a rainforest. So they only offered $20 for that trade in of a lens that cost me $179. A week later, I looked up the Adorama Ebay, my lens is for sale in E+ condition, no fungus, near perfect. I know it's mine, because I keep track of serial numbers and it's clearly visible in the ebay pictures. A week after I wrote this review, their customer service contacted me (after tracking/stalking me through linkedin) to offer me an additional $10 if i'd change this review. Incredible. Anyway, I ended up working at Adorama for a few months, and that's pretty much par for the course, it's breathtaking how little they understand cameras for such a big company. Used lenses so completely hazed over as to be opaque were assigned perfect scores and sold for top dollar value, equipment in great shape was given the lowest grade possible by the trade-in desk, presumably to screw customers like myself in the aforementioned story.

Years ago, this theater was awful. Tiny screens, uncomfortable chairs, stale popcorn, and a godawful staff except for the ticket taker guy. A few years ago they renovated with huge seats, slightly bigger screens and 4 of those behemoth coke machines. But, the staff still sucks, popcorn's still stale, and they fired the only person who actually cared about making the movie experience pleasant. If you catch a late showing, like I usually do, your parking's not going to get validated because the staff literally disappears. There's probably someone at AMC wondering why this theater is always on the verge of bankruptcy and just can't figure it out. Basically, cross your fingers and pray an Alamo Drafthouse gets built somewhere in northern NJ.

Couple of shell shards in my seafood pizza. Great otherwise.

Glad they have a first time customer discount, because I'm never coming back. I rented a Kino Flo 2' 4-bank, and because of my schedule could only pick it up about 15 minutes before they closed for the day for a job early the next morning. They were courteous, but pretty obvious about hustling me out of the store. That's fine, because having colleagues that worked in rental places, I know they must have inspected and tested everything before I got there. Surely in the 3 days since I placed my order someone should have tried to turn it on? Nope, I got home, set everything up to double check and lo and behold, one of the lights doesn't work. Tried a new bulb, swapping known-good bulbs, even put a multi-meter on the plugs, no voltage at all to that one bulb. So there was definitely something wonky that even a cursory inspection should have revealed. The facade of quality customer service disappears pretty fast here. I called and emailed CSI several times to see about a replacement before the job, the response was 'welp, I guess we can give you a refund when you return it'. That's it. So upon returning the broken unit, the store owner plugged it in while I was in the bathroom (1.5 hour commute from NJ) and it magically started working correctly. Somehow, no less than 3 industry professionals at the job location couldn't figure out why it was broken, but once in the store and out of my sight for a moment it's suddenly fixed. From here, the owner accused me of lying and demanded I leave while yelling racial and homophobic slurs as I walked down the street. For which he didn't charge extra, at least. So I guess my recommendation is: whatever unfortunate circumstance caused you to rent from CSI, be sure test every function of everything you rent in the store yourself because you can't trust anyone to do their job these days and you're not getting a refund, no matter what. I should note that this is the first time I've rented from CSI myself; other jobs where we've used them there's been broken modeling lights, bent grip arms, and other little things that while not job-ruining, they should have been noticed & corrected via a cursory equipment inspection. I would recommend K&M in Tribeca, B2Pro on the west side, or Playground in Brooklyn, I've never had a problem with their equipment, and if I did I feel like they wouldn't hurl epithets at me in the street.

I love going here, they always have neat and interesting old books. I personally go for the photography books; not only do they have great out-of-print art books, but lots of how-to's about film processing and printing, as well as essays by master photographers.
