Has anybody used the Grayline tours (on/off all day)? Not sure if that's a good deal compared to the city bus and subway.

I'm not a fan of the ritzy stores. Are there any open type flea market areas? I LOVE the homemade type craft places.
1. The advantage of the on/off tours is that you can sit in an open top bus and there is commentary by guides. In the Subways you see nothing and in city busses you see things but aren't told what they are.

2. Chinatown and Little Italy in lower Manhattan are good places to browse and are as close to an open flea market as it gets. They also have excellent food. The closest subway stop on any line is Canal Street. If you come down on the 4,5 or 6 line the nearest stop is City Hall/Brooklyn Bridge.
