Best Treasure-Hunting 

Lakewood's Tree Lawns

Living in or near the most densely populated community between New York and Chicago really pays off when you need a solid-wood end table on the cheap. No matter what youre looking for -- lawn mower? antique mirror? gently used toys? -- youll find it on a Lakewood tree lawn the night before garbage pickup. Its practically a sport: Simply coordinate your evening stroll with the next days target pickup region, then jockey for position with other scavengers. Elite pickers slowly cruise the streets in vans and pickup trucks. Admiring that vintage trunk or those old bar stools? Better grab them now. Otherwise, theyll be in someone elses home before sundown.
