Canal Street Map

Images copyright Robert K. Chin,



Many visitors to my website want information on New York City Canal Street. Apparently its the fake purse and knock-off designer items, and shopping locations people are interested in. So, unfortunately, this is what this page is about. I've highlighted vendor locations in orange on my maps, and included photos.

Note that some of these people are camera-shy because what they are doing, or involved in, may be illegal.

For the everyday shopper, one will encounter three types of people offering handbags for sale.

The first type are those who sell t-shirts, souvenirs, generic handbags, and cheap perfume from a rented storefront. Merchandise can sometimes be knockoffs. If they are, they usually they don't want to advertise that fact because they can be raided by the city, and shut down.

The second type are the illegal street peddlers hawking knockoff sunglasses, handbags, and dvds out of shabby suitcases on the sidewalk. These guys always run away at the first sign of police as they are breaking several laws all at once (no vending license, blocking traffic on the sidewalk, and selling counterfeit merchandise.)

Then there are the touts who hang around street corners and subway entrances uttering 3-4 magic words to every passing woman, "Gucci, Prada, Chanel, Coach?" They show you pictures of the handbags they have, and if interested, you follow them to semi-secret locations to buy these so-called better quality fakes. Most of these people carry cellphones and are constantly looking back for police and private investigators; it has almost become a game of sorts between the counterfeiters and the authorities. It has even gotten to the point of absurdity, with the arrest of an innocent Chinese funeral goods owner who sold cardboard copies "joss paper" meant for the afterlife.

I should also say that there are also many legitimate street vendors on the street (food vendors, general vendors, first amendment vendors, veterans). All these guys are regulated by the nyc department of consumer affairs, and possess a yellow vending license (blue-colored if they are disabled veterans). The rules for street vending are complicated, sometimes leading to disputes between vendors, but here's a handy illustration that simplifies the rules, as well as advocate better ones.

Most souvenir and purse vendors on canal street open their store around 10am (9am for the really early birds) and close 6-7pm, 7 days a week, rain or shine.
