used lenses in NY City

First of all please forgive me if this message should be posted somewhere else but I wasn't sure where to post it.

I will be going to NY in vacation next month and would like to know if there any camera stores in NY that have used lenses that you would recommentd.

Since used Pentax equipment in my home town (Lisbon, Portugal) is almost impossible to find maybe I would find something worth just across the ocean.

Maybe not the best price on used equipement, but they are a nice store to visit anyways:

Adorama, i think it is 18th and 6th Ave

B&H, I think it is around 11th Ave and 35st

Google them!

The entrance to B&H is on 9th Avenue, between 33rd and 34th. There's also Willoughby's, which I think is on 5th Avenue and 27th or 28th Street.

Another option is to check and have the lenses shipped to the address where you will be staying. Keh will have better prices. And almost all the time get item that actually has one rating above of what they were stating in the description.

You can look up Calumet... a lot of the stores have closed since the internet/digital changed the business.

Though I live nearby and shop at B&H and Adorama regularly
I prefer to purchase used Pentax lenses online from KEH.
