Richie is the best! NYC's best kept non secret.

Beloved Richie is our neighbor - we live upstairs, just above him and his incognito Guitar Shop. There is no sign, no indication from the street of the miraculous work he performs and inspires within the small studio, jam-packed with guitar parts.
We were always curious about the surreptitious comings and goings of folks with guitars slung over their shoulders. We asked him once who his clients were? He told us that he is, "Like a doctor, and respects the privacy of his clients."
He did get my daughters some personalized autographs and CDs from The Strokes tho!
