New York City is filled with fabulously stylish people and phenomenal shopping. In honor of that simple fact, I thought it would be fun to share an inside look at my personal guide to the Big Apple’s best shopping destinations.
5th Avenue in the Flatiron District
The Flatiron District along Fifth Avenue is at the top of this list, particularly the stretch between about 23rd to 16th streets. This area is far less touristy than the mid to uptown parts of the avenue and has a real neighborhood vibe. Best of all, it has a fantastic combination of high-end to moderately priced labels and shops. Some of these include BCBG Max Azria, Intermix, Michael Kors, Zara, and Express. Even the mass market retailers have a boutique like feel in this area. In this neighborhood you’ll find everything you need to put together the latest head to toe looks, minus the hassles of midtown crowds.
