Antiques and Vintage on Fifth It has been said that the one thing you can count on in New York City is change. For example, over the past decade, Park Slope’s Fifth Avenue has quickly morphed into a premier dining and shopping destination in Brooklyn, after years of serving as Park Slope’s “other” commercial district. Recently, we’ve noticed another change along the Avenue—the growth of Antique and Vintage shops. From Dean to 18th Streets, you’ll find shops specializing in vintage clothing, jewelry, tabletop and decorative items and antique furniture. So, take a walk along Fifth Avenue and use this guide to help you find the antique and vintage items you are looking for. Lulu’s Then & Now 75a Fifth Avenue 718.398.LULU C
