International DVD's in New York City

I'm going to New York City in a month and I was wondering if anyone knows of a place in the city where I can buy DVD's from other countries. I'm interested in foreign films that are not available on DVD in the US.

A few additional notes:

Re: KIMS - Their imports are mostly from Asia, and The U.K. Prices are not the greatest, and some bootlegs are apparently on the shelves (you know that for a fact when you see Song Of The South sitting there), so proceed with caution - there are goodies to be had. Also, Kim's buys used DVDs from all regions, so browse through the ever-expanding used section.

Re: Korean DVDs - There are actually several stores selling DVDs on 32nd Street, but despite the fact that I worked on that very block for several years, I NEVER bought a DVD there - the prices are much too high. Check them out to see what's available, have a nice lunch at one of the many Korean reastaurants, and head to Chinatown where you'll often find the exact same DVDs cheaper.

toddly6666 - HQ Video sells DVDs now? I haven't been there in more than a few years, and use to rent anime (and...um, "other" stuff) there on VHS tapes. I guess I'll have to pop on over there to see what it's like now

GREYDT, they don't sell DVDs, they sell special "DVDs" with English subtitles which are of excellent quality!

Thanks for the advice regarding the DVDs in Chinatown. I was just there today for lunch and was able to pick up 6 DVDs for $ 30! It's even cheaper than CD Wow! with the discount. In fact some of the DVDs are almost as cheap as Hong Kong. You just have to be careful though since there are fake DVDs interspersed with the real ones.

TALI219,
You live in NYC area and you have been buying your Hong Kong/Chinese DVDs online instead of going to Chinatown all this time??
