NYC - The Official Guide

Early Ruth Antiques


Ruth Markowe, the namesake and proprietor of this City Island antique shop, is a genuine lover of art and ephemera, and it shows in the collection she's amassed here. Visitors will encounter not just the typical antiquing finds—though there are plenty of beautiful old things about—but also a wide breadth of found objects and unexpected, even unusual, art finds. The difference between junk and a masterpiece is in the eye of the beholder, but shoppers are assured they're likely to find both here if they look hard enough.
