Counterfeit Alley
 n.— «A shopper can find pretty much anything else here, too, on this strip of Broadway a few blocks south of 34th Street. Sports jerseys. Sunglasses. Perfume. DVD’s fresh—maybe a little too fresh—from the big screen. Name-brand sneakers that are probably not. And, of course, Louis Vuitton handbags of uncertain provenance. The police call it Counterfeit Alley, and say it is the city’s top haven for knockoff, no-name, and flat-out phony goods.» —“No-Name, Brand-Name or Phony: It’s All Here” by Nicholas Confessore New York Times Oct. 9, 2006.
