I have been to the Yonkers and LI stores. Pretty good selection and
price. You have to do a bit of digging, but is the one of the few places
that will actually HAVE that thing you suddenly NEED in order to save
someone's bacon. Lots of esoteric parts and a good drive selection.
They have a focus on system builders too.
I would be surprised if Brooklyn is any different, probably just a bit
more ink on the sales people. :-)
