Dried Oysters

I have a friend that is willing to go on an ingredient hunting mission
for dried oysters for me in NYC but I don't have a specific grocery store
that I might offer her as a place to look.
Anyone know of a place where one can buy dried oysters
in the city?
I dinked about on various search engines for four afternoons
and found nothing.

  1. There's various shops in Chinatown selling nothing but traditional dried foodstuff items like shrimp, bean/seeds/roots, mushrooms and other edible fungi. Usually there'll be bins of items either outside or visible from the street.
