NYC Self Guided/Self Directed Shopping Itineraries are the Perfect Solution for the Independent Traveler

August 1st, 2019

Guided Shopping Tours liked those provided by Shop Gotham are a unique way to explore specialty shopping when unfamiliar with a new place.

However, for those who prefer to Shop Independently at their own PACE, we have developed a program just for you: Self Directed/Self Guided Itineraries.

Self Directed/Self Guided Itineraries give you the freedom to shop and explore when YOU want while visiting NYC. Whether you are a “careful” shopper, moving thoroughly through each rack, a speed shopper, seeking to “get the job done”, or simply want to entertain your Teen, these itineraries will provide the direction needed for a fruitful day. In this city of too many options, we will lead you to the “good stuff” targeting boutiques which are worthwhile and which you likely do not have at home, so as to come back with a little NYC in your bag.

Self Guided/Self Directed Itineraries available:
SOHO/NOLITA CHIC BOUTIQUES FOR MEN AND WOMEN
TEEN DRESS SHOPPPING
and soon available
WOMENS FORMAL DRESS BOUTIQUES
DESIGNER CONSIGMENT

And.. check out our Downtown Independent Food Tasting Itinerary

Fall is coming and your closets need to be filled with fabulous new items.

New Year’s Eve 2014

December 26th, 2014

If you are coming to New York for New Year’s Eve 2014, this list covers all the bases of fun activities, parties, fireworks-the whole 9:


Arrive by 3pm to stake out a spot in the Broadway/7th Ave cross. Be prepared to stay put and pack all of the snacks and beverages you will need for the night. There are no public restrooms or food vendors so leaving means giving up your spot.

Grassroots environmental organization Time’s Up hosts this under-the-stars bike ride, which begins in Washington Square Park and ends at Central Park’s Belvedere Castle at 11:45pm. Wear festive outfits and bring treats for the outdoor after-party.

Countdown to 2015 with 8,000 LEDs on the Parachute Jump. Once it’s midnight, the fireworks spectacular begins.

Kick off the New Year’s with this beloved Brooklyn fireworks tradition.

Join the fun and celebrate with dancing (starting at 10:00 p.m.), live performances, and a 15-minute fireworks show.

Relive the glory that is Prince’s Purple Rain with a FREE screening of the film at 9:30pm, followed by a dance party all night with your favorite hits from the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s.

Tis the poor man’s cruise. Board this ferry late on Dec 31 for a magnificent view of lower Manhattan to ring in the New Year.
