Best Place To Pick A Flower New York 2011 - Flower District
What if it could be springtime in New York all year long? Such a magical place of lush and floral scents exists right here in Midtown. The Flower District, sandwiched between Sixth and Seventh avenues, is a gem and is simply the best place to buy flowers and plants at a discounted rate. These vendors sell to both commercial and individual buyers, but always ask before purchasing. You'll also get a much better deal than buying flowers at the local bodega—it's almost less than half the street price. Our tip is to go early in the morning to get the best picks of the day. (They open at 5 a.m., but even arriving at 8 a.m. is OK.) Also make sure to always keep the receipt of whatever you purchase, in case something dies overnight. Now go give your fire escape a landscape makeover. West 25th to 29th streets, from Sixth to Seventh avenues
