Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

" The culture of thriftiness runs deep in New Yorkers. The immigrants of the Lower East Side knew about hand-me-downs, mending and making-do, pushcarts and the rag-and-bone pickers; in 1921 the actress Fanny Brice sang about "Secondhand Rose" in the Ziegfeld Follies. Covering Manhattan plus Williamsburg and downtown Brooklyn, this new volume in our popular series provides an insider's guide to the best shops and markets for almost anything you would want to buy. The first part of the book is organized into sections by type of object. All the key information you need to know (address, contact details, website and opening hours) is provided along with a brief description of the shop or stall. The second part of the book is organized by area so if you are in a particular neighborhood you can visit any of the shops. Each district has a useful map and a QR so that you can connect to interactive maps specially created for this book.

There are interviews with some of the shop owners and a special chapter devoted to New York's hidden gems, as well as a list of places to grab a coffee or a bite to eat in each neighborhood when you need a break from shopping.

Whether you live in New York or are visiting this exciting city, Secondhand and Vintage New York provides everything you need to know. It is not about buying cheaply, but about affording more! "
