New York Shopping


There is something about Shopping in New York City that simply makes a person smile. The shopping options feel infinite – and if someone wants to see all of the shopping opportunities available throughout the city, it would take a two or three week-long vacation.

South Street Seaport is the absolute best of Lower Manhattan – with names like Abercrombie & Fitch, Ann Taylor, and Sunglass Hut, the Seaport is definitely one of first shopping destinations to hit. It offers a cobbled drag; nondescript shops and a large food court at Pier 17, a waterfront barge-turned-shopping mall. The historic ambience and the wonderful harbor views are phenomenal.
