A Guide to the Antique Dealers of New York, 1995 - 1996 Covers New York City, Long Island, Upstate New York, and all the rest.
The first comprehensive antiquing guide to nearly a thousand antique dealers throughout the state of New York, "Antiquing New York" offers the serious collector and the more casual buyer an insider's view of the dealers in metropolitan New York City, and along the less traveled roads of upstate New York and Long Island.
Readers will find all the necessary information they'll need to explore the offerings of New York's myriad dealers. Whether they are looking for an Edison phonograph or an eighteenth century weathervane, antique lovers will be able to locate the stores that have what they want. Arranged in three sections -metropolitan New York, Long Island, and upstate New York- "Antiquing New York" will be a handy accompaniment to any antiquing adventure, large or small.
For Manhattan and Brooklyn, which both have large concentrations of antique shops, dealers are arranged street by street; Manhattan shoppers will also appreciate the neighborhood guide. From a stroll down Coney Island Avenue in Brooklyn to a thorough scouring of the shops on Manhattan's Upper East Side, "Antiquing New York" will show you the way.
Outside of metropolitan New York, listings are arranged by town. Helpful appendices for each section list dealers by specialty -from Art Deco furniture to vintage clothing- and by special services such as furniture restoration, repair, appraisal, or authentication. A general, alphabetical index is also included at the end of the book.
Experienced antique collectors John and Barbara Michel offer readers the inside track on the hundreds of dealers in New York. If you love antiques, or even if you're just looking for that genuine nineteenth-century top hat, you'll findthe answers in "Antiquing New York."
