    Hello everyone! I'd like to know if anyone could help me where to find Ferrari collectibles (accessories, pins, apperal, flags etc) in New York City. I prefer buying them after I see them in the store, but also websites you use to buy collectibles would help too :) Thanks in advance!

    exoticar is across the street from 299 Park Avenue. Just a couple blocks north of Grand Central Station.

    Aside from that Chinatown offers nice Girard Perregaux knock off watches.

    Hey! I didn't see any GP watches in Chinatown. :( I'll have to pay better attention next time. I had to settle for an automatic white face Daytona! :) There are also a couple of little shops in Little Italy where I found some Ferrari items.(had to look) Most of which I had never seen before, so they are probably euro-only imports.

    Don't feel bad, it takes an expert eye to spot them...
    :)

    Seriously I have been doing this for years. Probably spent by now more $$$ on fake watches than on one real one.

    Forget the stores in Chinatown unless you know some of the sales staff. They're too afraid and have good stuff (if at all) in some back rooms.

    The street vendors along Canal street, those that have only a window, which they can close within seconds if cops arrive, those are the ones with the interesting stuff.

    They normally have like one or two Perregaux with the S/F insignia. I bought one around X-mas for about $ 80. That might seem high, but it is a damned good copy with a japanese automatic (not Quartz!) movement. Has the right looks and weight, including serial number and all. And I'm the first to admit it is a knock off btw.

    PS: Once somebody wanted to see one of my many knock offs and I immediately pointed out it was a fake. They didn't believe and thought I was trying to show off. How's that for life imitating art?

    HAHA! Yeah, I know what you mean. I shopped around and found a guy with automatic Rolex,Breitlings,etc that were near perfect. An hour later, when I came back to buy, their roll down door was down and they were just milling about.LOL! That did put a hamper on the barter process,but I did get the white-face gold/stainless Daytona and a white face gold/stainless Yachtmaster both for $90! I figure, I'd spend at least $100 for an everyday knockaround watch anyway, so why not. They are near perfect with the clear backs and everything. I will definitely look for the GP's next visit! I LOVE Chinatown! For Ferrari content, I got the Ferrari red and black colognes (big bottles) down to $10 for both instead of $25 each!!LOL!! Every major metro area should have a "Chinatown"!!

    Absolutely! Our's in Chicago is dull in comparison. The best knock off you get here is a Luis-Vuitton purse. Big deal.

    While in NYC they had a consumer alert on the local news warning tourists about these knock offs. What do you mean? The 50 Dollar Rolex is not real? Oh my gosh! Who would have thought! I'm outraged.
    :)

    I always get a kick out of taking the newly acquired watch to a watchmaker place for adjustments of the bands. Did that once in Switzerland with a fake Rolex. They thought it was a real one, hehe.

    There's a small F1 store in Little Italy, I think on Mulburey street, that's dedicated mostly to Ferrari stuff but had some other teams.

    Just came back from NYC and was not that impressed w/EXOTICAR on PARK ave. Why advertise FERRARI 1/18 scale cars if you do not stock them. Furthermore, the service was not that great and the store itself was so small.
