buying Raspberry Pi in NYC

Sat Mar 23, 2013 2:13 am

Hi Everyone, I will be in New York City next May/June. Does anyone know a store where I can buy Raspberry Pi in NYC? Thanks in advance for the information you can perhaps kindly give me. Cezar :)

Enquire about their opening hours, it costs 45$ and the vending machine only accepts 5$ bills.

• Don't like the board ? Missing features ? Change to the prosilver theme ! You can find it in your settings.
• Don't like to search the forum BEFORE posting 'cos it's useless ? Try googling : yoursearchtermshere site:raspberrypi.org

I now have on my bucket list:

Buy a Pi and a Bag of Potato Chips from the same vending machine :)

That's....bizarre. Clever, but bizarre.

If I'm ever in NYC again (I was born there), I'll have to at least go and look at it. (Of course, if I could afford to go there, I could probably afford to get a Pi from the vending machine, just to say I'd done so.)

Tinkersphere sells Raspberry Pi's and Raspberry Pi related parts and electronics in Manhattan for pretty cheap. Link: tinkersphere.com/31-raspberry-pi

cheers thanks for that. I've been hitting up the Brooklyn Micro Center for my raspi needs but tinkersphere looks like it needs to be added to my "wander around the city" route
