This article is more about architecture than music, but Vintage Instruments is mentioned in threads here from time to time, and this write-up really shows what special place it is.  

It is well worth a visit if you are in town.

Each of Fred’s showrooms that he has had over the decades have been museum pieces in themselves. He and his lovely partner have an eye for detail in historical renovation that I have very rarely come across in my many decades of being in historical renovated private residences both here and abroad.

He also has one heck of an inventory of vintage instruments. As a instrument dealer I have always found him to be very attentive, knowledgeable and fair.

A great place to visit if you want to see some very unusual architecture and also more than a few nice instruments.

It's a fine place to see, with nice instruments. Parking is a pure-D b**** however.
