Affordable Hotels NYC – for your Garment Center tour

June 29th, 2011

NYC never ceases to amaze us. Apparently, this  Shop Gotham owner hasnt walked down West 40th Street in a couple of years. To my surpise today, I discovered that both West 40th and West 39th, between Ninth and Tenth Avenues have become the affordable hotel mecca. I counted 7. Likely, they are “supported” by Javitz Center trade show goers.  But if are seeking a decent (albeit not sexy) hotel in the  $150 range,  here you go.  And if you intend to take Shop Gotham’s Garment Center “insider” shopping tour,you are but steps away. Of the group, I suggest checking out: Four Points Sheraton and the Distrikt.

Where to find Celebrities in NYC June 20- 24

June 22nd, 2011

Shop Gotham is more than a shopping tour company. WE are source for all kinds of NYC info.  Once question posed by our tour guests on a nearly daily basis is, how and where do I see celebs.  Well. to be honest.. their guess is as good as  ours.. Unless a celeb twitters about where they intend to be at a given time, then they are people like everyone else and .. again .. who knows?

Due to the obvious demand, we will start to log info. when we receive it.

So this week: June 24th, from noon – 2, you can find Jill Zarin (Housewives of NY) at this charity Sample Sale: Fashion Flash, 60 Grand Street @ West Broadway. Sale features better designers such as Etro, Burberry and Prada. Sale itself from 11am – 7pm. Which charity it benefits? Hmm. .. they didnt say

Why take a Soho & Nolita Shopping Tour with Shop Gotham NYC Shopping Tours

June 22nd, 2011

Recent reviews from Citysearch:

1)”GREAT Shopping program. highly recommend. Last weekend,my girlfriend and I took the Soho tour. Although we live in the Westchester, we dont know that area and were determined to “edge up” our wardrobe. the shops we were taken to were oh so interesting and we found the guide Molly to be as charming and knowledgable as any host could be. We recommend spending your entire afternoon shopping on your own and using the discounts they provide. We enjoyed it very very much and would have enjoyed the tour for several more hours as well”

2)”Fantastic Fantastic Programs for those who like to shop. Last December, I took my 21 and 23 yrd old daughters to nyc and took a shot at the Garment Center tour. We all simply loved the shopping and the entire experience. So much so that we then booked the Soho tour too! And had a blast ont his one too. Both tour guides were stylish, patient, lovely and oh so charming women. Part of the enjoyment was spending time with them. The programs are so very different. If i had to break it down, one is for “deals” and visiting a side of NYC you really cant do on your own, the other is for “now” fashion, in super cute and well thought out spots. Shop Gotham’s tours are really terrific and professional. Go for it!”

Do the names Shoshanna, AKA,  and Tory Burch make you want to shop! We intend to take you to a “select few”. Why not to all?Well.. some we deem not worthwhile.. but more importantly, the time needs to also be spent in Wholesale Showrooms noone else but Shop Gotham can get into.
