Best Shopping in New York

Shopping In New York

Shopping malls are not native to New York City. Here, shopping is a pursuit likely to lead to the exploration of Manhattan’s unique neighborhoods.

Give yourself time to wander, and you’ll discover some of the city’s smaller and lesser-known boutiques, but don’t miss out on the top designer brands and world-renowned luxury department stores that make New York a shopping mecca. We’ve selected some of the very best to help you on your way.

SOHO

The cobbled streets of Soho are packed with designer boutiques and luxury brands such as Louis Vuitton, Burberry and Prada.

The area is popular with Manhattan’s fashion followers seven days a week.

NOLITA

A crowded weekend shopping destination, though perhaps not quite as popular as the famous Soho, Nolita contains fewer brands and more boutiques.

Nolita’s parallel north-south spines are Elizabeth, Mott and Mulberry Streets between East Houston and Kenmare Streets.

CHELSEA AND THE MEATPACKING DISTRICT

Well known for lively shopping and high fashion, Chelsea (west of Sixth Avenue between 15th and 30th Streets) is home to such designer boutiques as Comme des Garçons and Balenciaga.

In the neighboring Meatpacking District, you’ll find Jeffrey, Stella McCartney, Alexander McQueen and more among fresh galleries, gourmet food stores and eclectic antique stores farther toward the Village.

FIFTH AVENUE

Fifth Avenue, between Rockefeller Center and Central Park, is the pinnacle of the classic Manhattan shopping experience.

Expect to find names like Prada, Gucci, Cartier and Tiffany & Co., along with many other brands revered for their quality and vision. The famous Saks Fifth Avenue faces Rockefeller Center, a shopping destination in itself. Farther toward Central Park is the striking, glassenclosed flagship Apple Store.

57TH STREET

The iconic Louis Vuitton flagship, typically awash in some version of the brand’s legendary monogram, is on the corner of Fifth Avenue and 57th Street, setting the tone for this fashionloaded thoroughfare.

Next door is Yves Saint Laurent and not far away are other flagships such as Burberry and Chanel, as well as some of Manhattan’s most well known art galleries.

Madison Avenue

As far up as 79th Street, Madison Avenue is packed with French and Italian labels that include Giorgio Armani, Dolce & Gabbana, Valentino, Versace, Prada, Hermès, Jean Paul Gaultier and Chanel.

Between some of these big names and farther north, you’ll find several fascinating bookstores and antique dealers of old Manhattan.

MAJOR STORES

APPLE STORE, FIFTH AVENUE

At first glance, New York’s flagship Apple Store is not much more than a glass cube, yet it boasts hidden depths.

As it’s one of the most visited sites in New York City, you’ll want to stop by either early or late. For a more handson experience, reserve a place at one of the many workshops and events this technology wonderland offers.
