Fifth Avenue Shopping District
Find yourself in the heart of Manhattan’s shopping heaven, where shopping is bliss! Think Tiffany’s, Saks Fifth Avenue, Bergdorf Goodman and Abercrombie. That’s enough to keep your legs – and your wallet – busy for hours. Then there are also the mega-stores, such as the Disney Store, Apple and Niketown.
Madison Avenue Shopping District
Welcome to what’s known as the most expensive retail real estate in the world. The list of high-end, luxurious retailers go on and on – from Gucci to Changel, Vera Wang, Armani, Jimmy Choo, Ralph Lauren and Prada. That’s just the beginning of the list! The glitz and glamour of Madison Avenue Shopping District attracts celebrities from all over the world, so you might just run into your idol!
Time Warner Centre
Set in the heart of Manhattan at Columbus Circle, the Time Warner Centre is at the top of every traveller’s list. It’s one of New York City’s most iconic destinations, known for being the place for dining, entertainment and shopping. It’s home to a 60,000ft market selling Whole Foods, and more than 40 specialty shops. You’ll find Hugo Boss, Swarovski and more.
Soho Shopping District
High-end boutiques are waiting to be explored inside Soho’s historic buildings, along with huge brands you’ll find just about anywhere. Bloomingdales is always popular with the locals and visitors and so is Victoria’s Secret, H&M and Prada’s flagship store. There’s also Pearl River Mart, the first Chinese American department store. Along Broadway you’ll find many more fabulous foreign additions.
North of Little Itally is one of the hottest shopping strips in all of New York. Along Elizabeth, Mott and Mulberry streets you’ll find stylish shops at every turn. They specialise mostly in high-quality, expensive fashion, but you’re also find niche clothing designs and accessories from all around the world, but they won’t necessarily be at the high prices you’d expect.
