Best Place to Buy a Rug


ABC Carpet and Home, on the west side of the street across from the ABC main store on Broadway, may seem scarily expensive at first glance. But go downstairs to the bargain-basement lower level and youll find a remarkable selection of rugs in all shapes, sizes, and patterns (ranging from traditional Oriental to Scandinavian modern to acquired-taste op art), and all from $35 or less for a foyer-sized examplethe amount you thought youd have to pay for a musty, flea-bitten, flea-market carpet.
