If you are visiting NYC soon and looking for inexpensive and fun activities, clear your Thursday schedule! Chelsea art galleries open their doors to the general public every Thursday night from 6-8pm. Not only is this FREE admission (most museums charge about 20$), but the majority of the galleries involved offer a cocktail or wine of some sort “on the house”. Converse with the interesting array of guests and see whats new and emerging in the New York art world.
Shop Gotham hosts corporate group shopping tours in addition to our other shopping services. In the fashion world (and several others), it is vital to progress with what is new and interesting in retail in order to succeed. Our private industry tours allow corporate members to do precisely that. Just last week, we hosted a group from a high end fashion company (whom we must keep annonymous). Merchandisers from this worldwide corporation spent the afternoon alongside our knowledgable guides and had an educational shopping experience tailored specifically to their companies business needs. This is a fun and educational alternative for entertaining corporate groups that are visiting NYC.

Shop Gotham tour guides love to meet fashionistas-in-training who come to New York to shop, shop, shop. Maybe you’re one of them: the type to spend time digging through magazines for the latest trends, who troll boutiques and vintage stores for unique finds, they type to spend a lot of time creating your personal style. Frequently our guides are asked to recommend fashion blogs for those who need daily inspiration. Here are some of our faves:
This site is exactly what it sounds like: a go-to spot for fashion-minded guys and girls who want to stand out on campus. They’ll find plenty of inspiration on this site, which features interviews with fashion insiders and a daily fashionista spotlight. Perfect for the college student or soon-to-be high school grad.
When they join this website, users are able to share the things they love, sort of like a pinterest for fashion. This results in a diverse range of styles and lots of opportunities for inspiration. At Shop Gotham we love to find new things to drool over, and this website provides a minefield of material!
This lesser-known blog is run by a fellow NYC gal with an eye for glamor, and we love her. Featuring a ton of giveaways and tutorials, this young lady has definitely got an eye for fashion, coupled with a healthy dose of street sense. Glitterbuzz will not only feature the latest trends, but explain explicitly “how to rock” them. Enjoy!
