Chelsea Flea Market Circa 1965

Chelsea's famous flea market, the Antiques Garage, was recently save from extinction when an evil developer's plan to erect a hot at the location was squashed by the spiraling economy. A reader alerting me to this wonderful video that captures the flea market in its infancy, just a while after the 1964 World's Fair. Note the line about "everyone from in-town bachelors to suburban matrons." Very "Mad Men."
