New York City is made up of five boroughs: the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island. Each one has enough attractionsâ€”and enough personalityâ€”to be a city all its own. Learn more about them with this guide.
Always a scene, Lower East Side bargain hunters compete with city antiques dealers for the best prices on all things antique and vintage. Offering more than 100 vendors spread across two floors of an old parking garage, this market is perhaps the best known in the city, and for good reason--while the prices aren't the best you'll find, the merchandise usually hits the mark. It has its share of curio crap, but an early morning trip through the stalls--best to get there before the post-brunch, hand-holding hordes--can be rewarding. Run by the folks responsible for the Hell's Kitchen Flea Market, a shuttle is provided between the two spots for a buck.
