Housing Works Thrift Shops
130 Crosby Street
Housing Works Thrift ShopsNew York City has some stellar thrift stores, most of which benefit charities. The finest are run by the social service organization Housing Works, which provides assistance to people living with HIV/AIDS. Celebrities have been spotted dropping off their lightly-used clothes, accessories, and home goods, which are then put out for sale. Of the dozen or so locations in Manhattan and Brooklyn, the Crosby Street shop stands out for its selection as well as the added perk of the adjacent Housing Works Bookstore Cafe.
