    Estoy tratando de traducir la siguiente frase:

    ¿En qué punto de la ciudad están las ferias de antigüedades?

    In which point of the city are antique shops?

    ¿Estaría bien?

    My two cents:
    Where exactly are the antique shops at the city?

    La frases exactas serían las siguientes:

    ¿Dónde están las tiendas de antigüedades? ¿En qué lugar de la ciudad?

    Where are the antique shops? In which place of the city?

    in what part of the city...? Pero eso suena muy literal, la frase como te la puse primero da a entender que requieres saber en qué parte es que se encuentran las tiendas de antig[uedades

    Maybe:
    Whereabouts in the city are the antique(s) shops?
    For some reason, antiques shops doesn't look, or sound, right, but maybe it's just me:(

    Both "antiques shop" and "antique shop" sound / look fine to me, but I could be wrong...

    I agree that "whereabouts" is correct, but almost nobody (besides my old-fashioned New England mom) says it anymore, at least in the US. Is it still common in the UK?

    Well, I haven't lived in the UK for decades, but it sounds OK to me, but then I'm an old-fashioned Old England mom:D
    Wait for other (younger) replies;)
