Buying gear (used & new) in NYC

My girfriend is temporarily moving from Switzerland to New York City. She's gonna work on her music (and hopefully on her music career as well).
Right now she's working on her own on an older laptop computer (windows) with an RME UC interface and a mackie 8-bus, listening through small Tannoys. She's recording her vocals with an SM7 and a GT tube mic, for instruments she's playing a Juno 106, a Nord piano and lots of vsti's.
Now it's clear that she can't take all that stuff with her. She'll probably have the computer, the rme, a mic and preferably the Juno over there.
So she'll need a simple set of monitors and a very small mixer (she prefers to mix otb) - doesn't have to be hi-end cuz it's mainly gonna be for demos.
Additionally she might want to buy a better laptop over there, the old one's always breaking down with all those vst's.

Long story short, what are some good sources to buy new/used musical & studio related gear in NYC (Manhatten/Orchard Street)?

Thanks
David

Main Drag is great for used finds, and sometimes they're even reasonably priced! For new stuff there's Audio Power Tools out in williamsburg and Dale Pro Audio in the city. Otherwise you're going to guitar center where they just order everything from online anyway.

Craigslist is prob the best resource for local used gear, but it can be time consuming and you have to be confident that you know what you're buying.
