Visitors to our Staten Island Location have been noticing the significant and exciting changes happening at our longest running outlet, and we couldn't be more excited to introduce you to our newer, larger JHU New Dorp! (Click here for a map and directions.)
Things are still in flux as we finalize the move down the street to 299B New Dorp Lane, but the new location is up and running! Similar in layout to our original location opened up 25 years ago this year in Eltingville, Staten Island, this new location has more room, including an expanded dedicated gaming space!
The pictures above (work still in progress) are just a taste of what we've got in this new location. Please feel free to drop by and take a look around. If you have any suggestions for what we could do, please let us know!
As we say goodbye to 325 New Dorp Lane which we called home for 14 years, we say hello to this great new space. For 25 years, we have prided ourselves on providing a wide range of comics and graphic novels coupled with superior customer service, and we feel this new location will make Jim Hanley's Universe in Staten Island the premier neighborhood comic store and gaming spot in the world.
JHU New Dorp is your go-to venue for all things comics and gaming, centrally located near the Public Library, and Lane Music. Whether you are a long-time customer or a curious new reader, we look forward to seeing you in the days and months ahead!
By the way, a special shout out to the small army of hench-men and ladies who helped us move our entire store over the course of this past weekend, especially Jim Grande who did a ton of the construction work. Our staff is the key to our success, and we couldn't do this without them.
Stay tuned to the JHU Blog as we announce our grand re-opening and more special events all tied to our 25th Anniversary!
