New Yorkers use it as a term encompassing all of the souvenirs sold in Times Square that tourists take home with them to remind them of their trip to New York City. (I mean, what else would you call a melamine ash tray shaped like a yellow taxi?) AKA kitsch. Individual items of schlock or kitsch are known as tchotchkes.

Old cable cars that go up the side of Mt Washington

Cookies that have white frosting and chocolate frosting. In many other places they are called half and half cookies.
