Staten Island is the forgotten boroughagood news for shoppers in search of thrift stores unravaged by hipsters hunting ironic T-shirts. EVERY THING GOES offers four stores, the most tempting of which calls itself "Variety." Walkable from the ferry, these St. George treats are run by an intentional community called Ganas. Quirky conversation with co-op inhabitants? Jaw-droppingly low prices? Great selection and a free ferry ride? Sounds like the best shopping experience in town.
