J and R
J and R is a well-known retail store in New York City, located on Park Row, across from New York City Hall. J and R stands for Joe and Rachelle Friedman, the founders, who established the company in 1971. The heavily trafficked store has expanded from selling LPs to the current umbrella encompassing J and R Music World and J and R Computer World, selling everything from VCRs to the latest electronic gadgets.
J and R also had a location at Columbia University, which closed in 2003. J and R has now opened a J and R Express at the bottom level of Macy’s Herald Square.
Since the summer of 2002, J and R has sponsored an annual music festival in City Hall Park, featuring R&B and other performers. In June 2007, Summerfest performers included Mario, Bobby Valentino, Tank, Carl Thomas, Collie Buddz, and Canadian Brass.
