Almost everything in New York City has a market: a street or community where shops that sell the same type of goods come together.
Dedicated shoppers flock to these areas either for the best quality or for the best bargains or both.
When they want to bring more light to their lives, these shoppers go shopping in Bowery.
There they found the choice of the largest lamps, chandeliers, rail lighting, ceiling and wall fixtures --
The shape and size of the bulb seem to be the same.
They also often find the best prices.
But anyone looking for a bargain
It is recommended to visit first.
If you know exactly what you want, the name of the manufacturer and the selling price of it in a residential area store, you will be better able to save money in the city center.

Only by carefully checking or asking the right questions will you be sure you get what you think you get.
