I'm headed for NYC and want to find cheap treasures before the hipsters get them.

I'm a book dealer headed to the NYC area for a couple of auctions. I have a day in between the auctions and want to find some skanky junk shops to root through. Being a dealer, I don't want to pay 4 million dollars for a hipster typewriter or porkpie hat. I want to go to the places where the hipsters buy these things for 5 bucks. My free day is Tuesday January 14, if you know of any time-specific events. I'm primarily interested in books, maps, and paper, but anything old and interesting will catch my eye. Thanks!
