The Best Areas to Do Some Shopping in New York City
When it comes to shopping, New York City is one of the best places to be. Not only can you find any store that may only have another location in Paris or Tokyo, but you have a ton of options of areas to go, making it a shopaholic’s paradise.
Here are some of the best areas to check out while shopping in New York.
The Meatpacking District is one of the hottest areas in the City right now. Alexander McQueen and the Theory Headquarters are both located here. The newly constructed highline product spans over the area and makes for a great scenic view as well.
The undisputed king (or queen) of New York City shopping can be found in SoHo. Located South of Houston St (hence the name), SoHo is a shopping mecca. Any high-end brand has a store in SoHo. It’s no coincidence the girls down here are incredibly fashionable.
TriBeCa is another hot spot for high-end shopping. It is a little bit of trek to get down there, but this is part of the neighborhood’s charm and allure. If you are located on the West Side, it is a much easier commute.
Any native New Yorker would argue that the best shopping can be found on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. It is hard to argue with this, since the area boasts the world famous 5th Avenue.
Another area that is notorious for high end shopping, but is located on Long Island is the Americana Shopping Center in Manhasset. Also known as the “miracle mile,” this outdoor strip of luxury retailers is hard to beat.
Woodbury Commons is an outlet mall outside of the city that is impossible to beat when it comes to high-end brands at extremely discounted prices. Make a weekend of it and find the great deals that await.
