Lark Street Music is located in the center of Teaneck, in northern New Jersey, about 4 miles from the George Washington Bridge. It takes 20 minutes to get to mid-town Manhattan. You can get here from mid-town from Port Authority on the NJ Transit #168 bus, it's about a 35 minute ride. We moved here in July 1999, after being in Albany, NY for 18 years, since 1981. It's an enjoyable shop for out-of-towners to visit, and we are easy to drive from anywhwere being just 5 minutes from the George Washington Bridge. (see Hours & Directions)
