Best Place to Get in Touch With Your Inner Nerd

Collectors Warehouse

This store on Madison Avenue has everything you need to turn your basement into a nerd's paradise, minus the telescope and framed picture of your online girlfriend. Among the most prized items is an original Star Trek stand-up display that someone dug out of the trash - a steal at $175. Whoever your icons are, you'll find them here, from Marilyn Monroe to Axl Rose, Al Pacino to Orlando Bloom. Costing between $5 and $20, the posters make cheap wall candy. And if collectible toys are your thing, you could spend hours browsing. A word to the wise: If you're buying a poster, don't ask for Sticky-Tac. That stuff is like nerd Kryptonite.
