When in New York, drop by over in the Village Chess Shop. I've never been there but it looks like a cool place to visit. There's nothing quite like it in Sydney. Peter Parr's joint, while located in the hip and happenin' Surry Hills, doesn't even come close. If one day Peter did move up to an on-street store, instead of being down at basement level and spruced up the place a bit, then Chess Discount Sales could have potential. Right now you walk into CDS and basically meet-and-greet with chaos! But it does add something of character.
I learned of the Village Chess Shop thanks to The Sartorialist.
