In September 2012 I had put aside about $75 for new clothes for Autumn through early Winter. At first I went shopping at Aeropostale’s website but when I saw that for almost $60 all I had was one pair of jeans, a shirt and a hoodie I decided to shop around Fifth Avenue in Sunset Park instead. I needed more than one outfit and wanted to get the most for my money.
I did better than I expected. Fifth Avenue between 40th through 59th Streets has many local retailers that offer an ever changing array of garments, often at very reasonable prices. Here are the results of my very busy Saturday after shopping the post Labor Day sales.
