Where to shop in New York City
Are you ready for the summer? Well if you haven’t shopped for some new summer clothes yet, what better place to start than New York City! Summer is quickly approaching and if you need some retail therapy, or are just curious to see all of what New York has to offer, we have a couple of popular suggestions for you.
You can hop-off the Uptown Treasures and Harlem Tour or the Downtown Tour as you travel and shop to all eight of the following locations in one weekend!
Whether as a couple, alone, or with family there’s a lot to do in Times Square. Why not check out the biggest Forever 21 I have ever seen with four floors! Oh and it gets better, the kids will love Toys R Us, especially when they see the Ferris wheel inside. Yes I said, it!
South Street Seaport
Okay, here’s one of my favorite places of New York. If you want to shop, eat, and fill a cool breeze by the harbor too, hop off at South Street Seaport. You can be able to shop at Gap, Abercrombie & Fitch and Coach while listening to a live band by the water. Starting on Memorial Day weekend they will be offering a variety of new activities, diverse food, outdoor films, and cultural experiences throughout the whole summer.
Do you want to stand out at that party you just got invited to? SoHo is known for their trendy boutiques filled with clothes that you might not see in an average clothing store. You can also find stores such as Guess, Bloomingdales, and Prada.
Macy’s on 34th Street
If you want to find a gift last minute, or want to be somewhere where you can find just about everything, hop off at Macy’s. You can always trust the most popular department store of NYC! This Macy’s on 34th Street has always been known as one of New York’s landmarks.
If you love shoes, especially inexpensive shoes, try DSW. Union Square is known as the most popular places to shop with stores such as Banana Republic, Victoria Secret, and even a food market called Whole Foods.
Can’t find a souvenir for your friend back home? Chinatown has plenty of vendors filled with souvenirs, stylish shirts, hats, bags, shades, clothes, pretty much anything you can find for cheap prices. Oh, and if you ever wondered where to find knock-off designer clothes or bags, Chinatown has it all.
Is your heart in high-scale clothing stores? Greenwich Village is filled with designer labels such as Marc Jacobs, Micheal Kors, Ralph Lauren, etc.
Harlem 125th/Harlem Market
Are you a bargain shopper? Harlem is filled with stores with trendy clothes and urban wear for cheap prices. You can also find MAC, American Apparel, and H&M. You can also check out The Malcolm Shabazz Harlem Market where they have African-style hand-made clothes and jewelry for women, men, and children.
It’s a lot to choose from, but that’s the beauty of New York City! Hop on a double decker bus tour and shop as much as you want.
