Good places to buy used in Philadelphia or NYC?

I am looking for a used PD150 for $2000 or less. I want to pick it up in person, to avoid the risk of shipping, not to mention the added cost. I need to know what stores in Philly or NYC would sell a PD150.
Thanks,
-Rob

I don't think you'll find that in Philadelphia (let me know if you do :-)

By far the best thing for you to do is hop on the Turnpike, or bus, or train, and make the trek to B&H Photo in NYC. It's really not a long trip from where you are (I used to live in West Chester myself!). If you haven't been there then it's really a "must see"... not another place like it anywhere! It only takes a few minutes to get there from the Lincoln Tunnel and there are a number of parking lots nearby. See the info on their website: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/

Really? That's awesome! I live pretty close to Exton. Graduating from Henderson this year :-) . Does B&H negotiate prices even a little? They have 2 PD150's, but they're sort of expensive. I could probably talk my dad into making a trip, he orders photo gear from them all the time.

Sorry, have never bought used gear from them. But it's definitely worth the trip, even for the "sightseeing" value! Let us know if you find a camera, and also what you think of B&H!
