I remember the two shops on 45th Street between 5th and 6th, the one in the Port Authority building, Polk's on 5th Ave near 38th Street and, of course, Madison Hardware, but not "Bookies.

I worked in Manhattan from 1968 through 2000

 Bookbinder was not in Manhattan. He was on LI. he worked out of his home. His prices were way to high.

Lived in NY from 1930 to 1973. never heard of that hardware store..

Polks was on 32st and 5th ave just down from the Empire State Bldg.

Between Art, John, and Eddie, that's only that 70 year period.  What about pre-1930 or post-2000?

  Bookbinder was located in a private house in the Jamaica Estates ,Queens. Just north of the 179st subway station. One day after school my friend and I knocked on his door because we saw his ad in Model Railroader. The prices did not matter to us. We had no money anyway. We just wanted to look around. He slammed the door and said he had no trains for sale.
