The store clerk did not know what B and H in the name stand for, but it is one of the most famous destinations for serious photographers around the world. A lot of my personal Nikon photo equipment has come from here, including used Nikkor lenses. So when I was in New York recently, I decided to check it out.
Here’s a quick glimpse of just a small part of the store. Many of the personnel were jewish, orthodox in their appearance. B and H has a huge web presence. India represents a fertile market for the store, and they did try to create a limited presence here. Sadly, that has not taken off.
