    Brooklyn Shopping

    How do you describe this shop? It's got everything from breastpumps to gorgeous nursing shawls to lace nursing bras and more. They have slings to try on,and because of that I was able to purchase one right then and wear it out! Since nyc is a great place to walk, carrying your baby makes it so much easier.

  • Canal Street

    New York City Shopping

    If you come over to New York City with bargain shopping in mind (and there are many who do), then the one bargain place - and very possibly the best one of all - is Chinatown. No other place like it. But the best part of it too is that here one can combine one's visit to include practically everything from shopping to sightseeing to great...

  • ABC Home and Carpet

    Brooklyn Shopping

    ABC has opened up a DUMBO location and it's crowded, but more with stuff than with people. Lots of carpets, and lots of large wooden pieces. Fewey knick-knacks...which is good. There is parking available, and the staff is very eager to please. Depends on what you're in the mood for! Doors? Couch? Table? There were some cool dressers...if you have...

  • Macy's

    New York City Shopping

    I had never been to NYC before; this was the first time. What a wonderful store and at Christmas, it was really "dressed for the occasion". Everything there that you could think of. Everything that you can't find in your home store and that's a lot. A little pricey, but what do you expect? It's the landmark store, the store of all stores.

  • Galleria

    White Plains Shopping

    I usually come to the Galleria as they have the stores my daughter likes to shop in (more affordable than The Westchester). The Galleria has a decent selection of retailers that you would find in most malls with names like Forever 21, Old Navy, H&M, Nine West, Sears and Macys to name a few. They have a food court with your typical fast food...

  • Bloomingdales

    New York City Shopping

    Another must visit store - so iconic of New York, affectionately known as 'Bloomies' to locals i believe! I always like to have a wander around the cosmetics and purfumes department of these stores and this one certainly didn't disappoint! Every brand you could ever wish for is here and was a pleasure to just have a wander round! We had lunch in...

  • Toys R Us

    New York City Shopping

    I've never seen so many toys in my life. This place really brought out the inner child in me. As soon as you walk in you are greeted by a 3 story tall ferris wheel with cars of different cartoon characters. The store is divided into sections by toy type. There was a huge Barbie section, lego section, CANDY SECTION =). I was intrigued with the...

  • Tiffany & Co.

    White Plains Shopping

    I have been in this store many time to buy presents for Liz. I have always experienced friendly service and they respond well to my pointing at the catalog to indicate the item I am looking to purchase. Anything a woman would want or didn't know she wanted yet... Affordable to expensive

  • FAO Schwarz

    New York City Shopping

    A typical toy shop will choose to stock certain brands of toys, once its done that it will stock a fairly complete range of those toys. This is where FAO Schwartz differs, they stock shelf after shelf of the exact same model of each brand, making their selections very limited. Then there are the staff, if you can find a member of staff which took...

  • Fortunoff (CLOSED)

    White Plains Shopping

    Fortunoff is the type of department store that appeals to me. They seem to carry many of the brands and products that I always find my self after and with a selection worth seeing of each. Many of our appliances have been purchased here including our wine fridge that we picked up on the way home from the airport recently. Also to walk around the...

  • Apple Store

    New York City Shopping

    A glass cube sitting on 5th Ave and 58th St. Everything else is below ground. These pictures show the fanbois (and gurls) that just had to be the first to own an iPad2. The store shut at 3:00 PM on launch day and reopened at 5:00 PM. The lineup went around the block. Kudos to Steve Jobs and the Apple Marketing Machine. All of those overpriced...

    Victoria's Secret was started in San Francisco, California in 1977 by Stanford Graduate School of Business alumnus Roy Raymond, who felt embarrassed trying to purchase lingerie for his wife in very public and awkward department store environment. He opened the first store at Stanford Shopping Center.The stores were meant to create a comfortable...

  • B&H Photo and Video

    New York City Shopping

    This is perhaps the biggest shop for photos, camera, computers....electronics in general. It has many stores, it's very dark (like every shop in NY!), lighted by artificial light only and most of the assistants are jews (many of them, "chassid" with a white shirt, black suite and curly hair hanging down their ears). Once you have understood where...

  • Saks Fifth Avenue

    New York City Shopping

    We are not big shoppers by any means, but felt we had to visit a couple of really famous ones, just to say we had been there, much like visitors visiting Harrods in London. World renowned and a must-see. The interiors in Saks were as expected, very posh and expensive in taste. It’s a place where anything that looks like glass, you can be pretty...

  • Pearl River Mart

    New York City Shopping

    If you have a thing for Asian (and even if you don't) you'll love Pearl River. It's a kaleidoscope of clothing, kitchenware, lighting, food, home decor, furniture, toys, knickknacks and everything else you could imagine. And the stuff is really, really cheap. Really. Some of it is also really cheesy but all of it is big fun. This is THE place to...

  • Forever 21

    New York City Shopping

    This shopping tip, I am sure, will appeal only women (so I am giving you guys fair warning). There is generally not much bargain shopping in New York City, especially in Times Square unless you opt for the knock-off purses sold on nearly every corner, or happen upon a big sale. However, during our day trip to the Big Apple in June, 2010, we really...

    New York City Shopping

    Dean and Deluca is a Cadillac among NYC epicurean emporiums and one look at their gorgeous displays of gourmet edibles - and their price tags - will leave you gasping.

  • Street Vendors

    New York City Shopping

    And jewelry from street vendors. Tried my friend, Kristin's, suggestion of haggling over the price then walking away but that didn't work at the first 2 tables. Maybe we didn't show enough interest or we were in the wrong part of town (i.e. NOT Canal Street). Who knows? Luckily, at a 3rd place they sold the tacky, gold heart-shaped earrings Megs...

  • Dylan's Candy Bar

    New York City Shopping

    This is the neatest candy store, for adults, too. There are two stories filled with the most comprehensive assortment of Jelly Bellies, M & M's, Pez, all kinds of gummi candies, as well as a dessert cafe and ice cream bar. In 2008 a third floor was added and so it's now a 15,000 sq. ft candy store. They have also included an apparel section (One...

  • 5th Avenue

    Wonderful street with lot of upscale stores. Unfortunately, my impression was ruined by lot of street sellers offering fakes for 15 bucks. I really did not expect well developed black market in the heart of Fifth Avenue. What a dissapointment!

    New York City Shopping

    As our world is swiftly becoming gobbled up by all technologies and we humans transformed by them more and more into a form of mechanized new beings less patient, less attentive to tactile surfaces and sensations, we inevitably lose our passions for lesser things especially those that still carry old values deemed burdensome in weight and space and...

  • Walt Disney Store

    New York City Shopping

    Even if you're not planning on spending your hard earned cash in shops like Louis Vuitton and Prada, its still nice to take a walk down Fifth Avenue, just to say you've been. It is, of course, home to the famous jewellery store Tiffanys and co. We walked along Fifth feeling pretty jetlagged (and I imagine looking pretty rough), I didn't buy...

  • Strawberry

    New York City Shopping

    Strawberry is a cheap trendy clothing store in New York. I don't know how many branches there are because the website crashes everytime I go on it. I can't remember which branch we went to either. My experience at Strawberry would have been a whole lot sweeter if the staff had been your stereotypical "have a nice day" types. If Strawberry was a...

  • Bergdorf Goodman

    New York City Shopping

    This is an exclusive department store, which generally isn't my style. However, the boutique cosmetic section is great. The Prescriptives counter does custom blend lip gloss. It's absolutely worth it. There are very few Prescriptives locations that do this and it was worth the trip. I'm planning on heading back to the city this summer for...

  • Duane Reade

    New York City Shopping

    (work in progress) It's hard to walk around New York City for more than 10 minutes and NOT stumble across a branch of Duane Reed, the ubiquitous drug store (pharmacy). Which is a good thing in my book, since it probably offers more to the tourist in need than virtually any other sort of store ... Drug stores in the U.S. are not limited to...

  • Trash & Vaudeville

    New York City Shopping

    Some books said, they sell punk-clothes, but when we went there we noticed there is lot more than that. Nothing you would find in places like H&M and Zara and so on, but clothes and accesories with punk-, roc- or gothic attitude. It´s a fun place and we did find many interesting clothes and such in there. The prices were the same or even more than...

    New York City Shopping

    This boutique is located in Soho, but it feels like an off-shoot of the Natural History Museum. They carry everything from skulls and anatomical models to minerals like agate and crystals. The store even has its own Entomology Department, so the array of insects, from butterflies to scorpions, available for purchase is astounding. I'm dying to take...
