Best Place to Go for a 50-Cent Sweater - 2001
A mysterious commune owns the three EVERYTHING GOES shops on the Staten Island waterfront, located a five-minute walk from the Staten Island Ferry. They cook huge, wonderful meals together and communicate by walkie-talkie. The plunder at their stores is well worth the slow boat ride. Well-made vintage skirts and sweaters as cheap as 50 cents at one store. Smurfs, record players, and scads of Cleopatra necklaces at the original store. And a furniture shop just up the road. 140 Bay Street, Staten Island (clothing); 208 Bay Street, Staten Island (original); 17 Brook Street, Staten Island (furniture).
