Lonely Planet review

Like Diagon Alley in Harry Potter, the Diamond District is a world unto itself. A frenetic whirl of Hasidic Jewish traders, pesky hawkers and love-struck couples looking for the perfect rock, its 2600-plus businesses peddle all manner of diamonds, gold, pearls, gemstones and watches. In fact, the strip handles approximately 90% of the cut diamonds sold in the country.

Marilyn, eat your heart out!
