The Best Vintage Stores in New York

 

New York has always been in fashion. Whether it's highend or street style, the city seems to encourage a certain level of panache, and this is greatly aided by the amazing collection of vintage stores, dotted all around the city. From costume jewelry to cowboy boots to 80s dungarees, you can find it all under the roofs of these selected gems, and much more besides. At times more like galleries, exhibiting the lost relics of the past, these stores are worth a look if only to browse the decades of style that came before us.
