but sometimes nothing very special. Some regulars spill over along Columbus Avenue -- my companion and I often buy fresh eggs from a farm in upstate New York. The flea market has a variety of vendors, some Americans with family heirlooms, but many folks selling odds and ends from their stores. We always stop by when in the neighborhood --... More

I went there based on these reviews. It was interesting for 5 seconds then went down hill. No bargains, nothing amazing (loads of tut from India and Thailand) and crud from America. A few interesting jewellery items if you were very, very lucky... all in avoid

I found it quite interesting to walk through the school the markets are held in, but the markets themselves weren't overly exciting.

Lots of vendors selling an array of merchandise from new to used to vintage to antique. Everything from jewelry to "art" to handmade hats and china teacups. Fun sport of place. Great for an hour's poking around on a Sunday. One vendor sells breakfast pastries....mmmmm.

Stopped in just after they opened. I stayed about 45 minutes but could have spent longer. Pretty good selection of everything (see pictures). Better selection here as compared to the Chelsea Flea.

Somewhat disappointed in what was available on the day and not as large as the website hints at. Maybe we just hit it on a bad day. ​However, take a walk back up towards Central Park and you'll find a street market in full swing where I guess the locals go to buy their Sunday food, lovely atmosphere and lots...

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theatre performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
