This place is ridiculous (in a good way) There's wall to wall and floor to ceiling candy everywhere. They have every kind and size of candy that's ever been made. The prices are surprisingly reasonable. (I do wonder about the "freshness" of the inventory)

If you're looking for a unique place to get some sweets while you're walking around the LES be sure to stop at Economy Candy. They have everything from old school treats to the newest gummies and candies on the market. Fun place!

Lower East Side
Straddling the bridge between New York’s thriving
immigrant past and its modern transformation into a
beacon of global art and culture, the Lower East Side
is one of the most dynamic neighbourhoods in the city.

and blight of the Lower East Side immigrant experience
now command top dollar for new residents. Right next
to old-world delis, 24-hour bodegas, and the garment
