Colony was originally opened by Harold S. Grossbardt and Sidney Turk in 1948. It boasts one of the largest sheet music collections in the United States. Now, the store sells Broadway CDs, karaoke albums, production DVDs and more.
The storefront was first at Broadway and 52nd Street, but moved to 1619 Broadway in 1970, which is located inside the Brill Building.
