This East Village DVD and record store is a packrat’s nest of peeling stickers and cult movie posterscomplemented by CDs and vinyl. Famous for its wildly flavorful selection and a punk attitude, Kim's caters to cineastes looking to cheat on their Netflix with something a bit more avant garde. In the maze of racks, you’ll find entire subgenres you didn’t even know existed: foreign films from tiny, frozen countries; ridiculous British TV shows; and fetish-inspired anime.
