Greenport: This bustling hub out on Long Island's North Fork has one of the best selections of antiques reflecting the old seafaring world on the North Fork.
Southold: While it may play second fiddle to neighboring Greenport, just-as-cute-but-quieter Southold is a great place to browse antiques with less company. There are a number of treasure-filled shops, including an antique doll hospital.
Locust Valley: Most antiques hunters head to Port Jefferson, farther east on Long Island's north shore. And that's exactly why you should hit this tiny town that's not even on many maps -- the goods are less picked over and the antiques are of excellent quality.
Hudson: This formerly run-down town along the Upper Hudson has exploded with high-end and eclectic antiques shops, making it the antiquing destination of the Hudson River Valley (indeed of any place in the state north of Manhattan). Almost all the dealers are confined to the long stretch of Warren Street, making it ideal for window-shopping.
Bloomfield Antique Country Mile: Just west of Canandaigua, this mile-long cluster of antiques dealers along routes 5 and 20 in Bloomfield is one of the best concentrations for antiquing in the Finger Lakes, with several multidealer shops lined up back-to-back.
