Tourist shops near Empire State Building

Tourist shops abound in the shadow of the famous New York landmark, the Empire State Building...just about every kind of knick-knack and souvenir item (tons of Empire State and Statue of Liberty replicas, smaller ones maybe serving as paperweights --does anyone have paperweights in this electronic age anymore?-- and the inevitable touristy postcards ( if you want more artistic cards of NYC, try a Hallmark card store).
This display was right around Fourth of July....I assumed they meant to keep the storefront this way all year round, but I would not know now because I have not been on this block since I took the picture...
