Don’t Skip the Bloomingdales Visitor Center – 59th Street

“Like no other store in the world” and we at Shop Gotham agree. If you are from anywhere other than NYC proper, don’t skip the Visitor Center. Here you will be treated to a variety of goodies and comforts to make your day at Bloomies more enjoyable. Lets start with a Coat check (manned by lovely people no less); nothing is more annoying than browsing racks while burrowed in your 5 pound puffy coat. Next, a One Day 15% discount pass. Surely you dont want to miss this. Maps of the store in all languages, Size Conversion charts for all countries and finally, a docking station for your battery empty cell phone. They have thought of everything and for this, we love you Bloomingdales, even more.

The Absolute Must Places to Shop NYC

We are often asked, ” if I only havea  few precious hours in NYC to shop, where should I go”. Its a quandry to answer this, as shopping is not  “one-size fits all” endeavor. However, we offer this, regardless of what you intend to shop for when visiting NYC (and if you dont intend to shop, you’re crazy) there are 4 places you must not skip, if just for the experience: ABC Carpet and Home; the Apple store on 59th & Fifth ; FAO Schwartz and Bloomingdales on Lexington & 59th.  In our humble opinion.
