Last year, I took a short shopping trip to New York to see if I could have a good shopping experience. From the moment I booked a cheap flight to the city to the moment set my foot on the city’s famous streets, I found every reason to smile and be happy. Many department stores in the vibrant city are not far away from each other and can be accessed easily on foot. The following are some of the best stores I managed to visit:
1. Brooklyn Flea Market (Fort Greene)
The Brooklyn Flea market turned out to be one of my most favourite shopping centres in New York. I was amazed by the large number of vendors selling a wide variety products including vegetables, fruits, beauty products, gift baskets, furniture, arts & crafts, plants & flowers, shoes, vintage clothes, toys, modern and traditional musical instruments, pastries, antiques, and books at very affordable rates. I learnt that during winter, the market is usually moved indoors to a large, beautifully decorated space in the former Williamsburgh Savings Bank building found in Flatbush, off the Atlantic Avenue.
