A Greatest Depression Upside? The Antiques Garage Is Staying Open!


It’s hard not to like our current Greatest Depression just a little bit when perhaps it’s linked to happy news like the fact that the longtime Chelsea Antiques Garage on 25th Street (which was to close after Thanksgiving) appears to be sticking around for at least a year or two. Said a vendor there, “The developer can’t get a hotel license. There are too many hotels around here as it is.” And not enough flea markets. And Brooklyn Flea, we know you’re “all that” right now, but some of us Manhattanites are just too hung-over on Sundays to make it out there, okay? [Jeremiah’s Vanishing NY]
