-- For those who prefer hunting for inexpensive treasures to trawling the high street for designer goods, New York can be a haggler’s delight, offering plenty of quirky thrift shops and flea markets selling second-hand bargains. Based in Midtown Manhattan, the cheap and chic nyma, the new york manhattan hotel is a good base for those wanting to explore the city’s artisan suburbs. What’s more, the hotel is working with Hell’s Kitchen Flea Market to offer a cool Flea Bucks package for guests wanting to bag a bargain in 2012.
Setting the standard for distinctive vendors and arguably one of the best shopping streets in New York, Hell’s Kitchen Flea Market is cool, unique and bursting with interesting finds. From old postcards, trinkets and household goods to costume jewellery, there’s nowhere better for visitors to discover something delightful for just a few dollars.
In addition, Hell’s Kitchen and indeed many suburbs of New York such as Brooklyn, have a real ‘make do and mend’ attitude reminiscent of the 1940’s war era – austerity is ‘in’, with locally-produced slow food cafés on the rise, farmers markets selling handmade cheeses and baked goods and even craft and knitting nights in coffee shops, for those preferring a cuppa to a Cosmopolitan!
Located within walking distance of the city’s top landmark sites and just a short cab ride from Hell’s Kitchen Flea Market, the recently re-launched nyma, the new york manhattan hotel is conveniently situated on 32nd Street between Broadway and Fifth Avenue. Ideal for frugal visitors, it boasts a host of complimentary amenities including continental breakfast, wi-fi, national phone calls, as well as a fitness centre and a mezzanine lounge serving free tea and coffee.
Between February and May, nyma, the new york manhattan hotel is offering a special Flea Bucks package to guests from just US$244.99 per room, per night (approx. £78 per person, per night). The price includes one night’s accommodation, a Hell’s Kitchen Flea Market canvas tote bag worth US$13.99 and a Flea Bucks voucher worth US$20 to spend at the market.
