This is its prime season, however....
Let me see what I can google:(This from NY Times article):
Manhattan’s century-old flower district occupies little more than a block of West 28th Street, between Avenue of the Americas and Seventh Avenue, whittled down over the years by soaring real estate prices and condominium encroachment. Yet what a block it is: a startlingly verdant oasis that can be explored in less than half a day. Plants, branches, vases and garden accoutrements crowd its sidewalks, and usually cost less than what florists and other vendors charge. Much of the business is wholesale, but many shops now welcome walk-in customers, too. “These days,” one vendor said, “we’ll take anything.”
