The highlight of Bogota's 'blink and you'll miss it' row of antiques shops is a gem of a store called Good Things run by a friendly and knowledgable fellow named Dan Navarro, who still has a day job at a publishing company when not running the shop. He has a great selection of items that could rival the inventory in any hipster Soho shop of similar antiques but I bet Bogota's treasures are more reasonably priced . . . rare, mod Italian lamps, vintage belt buckles, assorted vases, figurines and a gold leaf deco cat are just some of Dan's cherry picked goodies that make Bogota worth a trip over the Hudson River.
