Chinatown in Brooklyn: Feng Shui Store?

My fiancee and I are coming to Long Island in May, and we are looking for someplace that (hopefully) has an impressive collection of Feng Shui products. As an alternative to ordering online from China, Nepal, and elsewhere, we would like to find a place where we can see what we are buying. We understand C'town Bkln is newer, and possibly less expensive. We would also love to be alerted to any "can't miss" places to experience in Chinatown. Thanks!

You should look in Flushing, Queens. Closer to Long Island and the largest Chinatown in NYC these days, I think.

Sunset Park is actually one of the largest Chinatown areas in NYC. You can't go wrong there. Take the D train to 9th Avenue and walk one block up to 8th Ave and walk down. Great area....

Are you going to be coming from Long Island (as in your original post) or Long Island City? They're very different locations and what's closer will vary depending on your answer.

If you're truly on Long Island and have access to a car, then Flushing will clearly be simpler.

Thank you for your post. We have a renta-car, yet we are not adverse to the subway once traffic/parking gets congested. We really are interested in finding the best selection, since the place w/ the best feng shui artifacts probably has great food/shopping nearby. Is Flushing a good bet?

If you are after more than crystals, consider Pearl River Mart, 477 Broadway, Soho, has separate furnishings store. Visit their website to see if they have what you want.

Even if you don't have a car, Flushing is the easiest place to get to, it's at the Main Street Station of the #7 line near east-west Northern Blvd and east-west Roosevelt Avenue at north-south Main St. And it's right off the Long Island Expressway near Citi Field where the Mets play. It make Stockton Street in SF look a little quaint. It's the most middle class yet very Asian Chinatown you will ever see, with both Bazaar-type shopping center, with each business having its own small footprint, and big Chinese supermarkets, clothing store, very nice restaurants, and even Macys.

Going the extra 10 miles to western Brooklyn (Sunset Park) is more of a shlepp (as they say in China :^) though it is also a lot like the very famous Stockton St.

The famous NY Chinatown in Manhattan might have the stuff too (Canal St and East Broadway in Manhattan are the two big streets, with lots of side streets). And that is on 8 subway lines (Q,N,R,6,J on Broadway, F,B,D around East Broadway and around Chrystie St).
