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.

SoHo NYC. Tips for a worthwhile Full Day in SoHo

June 15th, 2017

With its cobblestone streets and Cast Iron architecture, the SoHo/NoLita neighborhood is worth a full day’s visit. Yes, like much of NY, its becoming “mallified” – big name brands pushing out indie stores- but there is still plenty of interesting shopping and far more. Our recommendation (including our own “plug”:)

New Museum of Contemporary Art (great architecture in NYC)

A Friday:
1)11am: Pay a visit to THE NEW MUSEUM, for contemporary art in a stunning physical structure. 
2)Noon: Lunch at DELICATESSAN www.delicatessennyc.com (not a deli!) for delicious comfort food options as well as great light fare on the best corner for people watching, inside and out.
3)1:30pm: Join us for a SoHo and NoLita Chic Boutiques Shopping Tour so that we can Bring you to those Indie shops worth knowing about
4)4:00pm: Visit MOCA: www.mocanyc.org (museum of Chinese in America) and learn the story of this important immigrant group in a building designed by the famed Maya Lin (also designed the Vietnam Memorial in DC)

SHOPPING GROUPS (the pleasure seekers)
BEHIND-the SCENES: For those who enjoy fashion and shopping, treat them to a rich program of meeting Fashion Designers in their Showrooms, while they enjoy the rare opportunity to shop at Wholesale (50– 70% less than retail), an activity typically reserved for store buyers & magazine editors.  Quintessential “only in NY” experience.

YOUR PERSONAL BROADWAY: For any visiting group that “craves” an upfront thespian experience or just an uber cool “only in NYC” moment, this will surely quench their thirst. In the privacy of their own performance space, a Broadway musical cast member (from a current show) will perform a selection of songs. With plenty of time for questions it’s then on to learning a Song or Dance from the show. Perfect pairing for groups seeing the actual Broadway show

Showroom Shopping in the Garment Center district

SHOPPING CONCIERGE
For independent types, Shop Gotham will map out a day’s worth of shopping in New York for each group member.

Window Shopping at Bergdorf Goodman

February 26th, 2015

Looking for something fun and free to do in NYC this weekend? We highly recommend strolling Fifth Avenue to witness the new and breathtaking Bergdorf Goodman window display, designed in honor of New York Fashion Week. BG commissioned installation artist Eva Petric to create a visionary “Lace Environment” in the windows of the store front.

This immaculate display is called “Personal UNiVERSEs” and consists of thousands of tiny, individual vintage lace pieces that have been combined to create large weblike environments. While the mannequins are dressed in looks from the stores new Spring 2015 collections, Petric’s lace networks serve as the backdrop and surrounding environment. These stunning windows will be on display until March 8th.

According to Petric:
“The assemblages are made out of old, given, or purchased  pieces of lace and hand works. Some I got from family and friends, and many were bought from flea markets around the world. Some were given to me by people who pulled them from storage–even out of cellars. So these pieces really represent for me the trans generational connections that tie us into worldwide webs.”
