Despite its limited size, one could spend an entire day in George Glazer Gallery and probably still not see everything that the space has to offer.

An enticing and eclectic mixture of items caught my eye as I walked into John Koch Antiques. There was a dollhouse in the front window filled with crystals, a collection of animal skulls on the wall with differently shaped horns, and old Victorian medical equipment.

Sutton Clocks

Sutton Clocks is what we at Manhattan Sideways refer to as a true hidden gem. The low shop was lined on both sides with clocks dating back to the eighteenth century, set to different times.

In between ordinary glass storefronts, it stands alone as a long, thin corridor of goods, overflowing onto the pavement with old paintings, tools, and watches. Watches are Elias Lifshitz’s specialty.
