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.

Fall 2017 Apparel Garment District

The ABC’s of New York City Sample Sales

As the peak season approaches each year, we try to enlighten our readers with the What, Why and How of Sample Sales.

Once upon a time, designers sold their handful of sample size items at the end of the year. These are the individual pieces shown to store buyers. Some make it to full production, some do not.  Typically, these are size 2, 4 or 6. That was then, this is now

Now, sample sales are BIG business and one can expect big inventory. All seasonal overstock in ALL sizes as well as those coveted one-off samples, are offered at Massive discount. This is an opportunity to buy often unaffordable clothing and accessories at very affordable prices. Or to chase down the designer names you love. or to simply shop for cool stuff. Essential to know: Must get to Sample Sale on its First day open!

In New York City, the apex of the 2017 sample sale season is November 13 to December 15.

Shop Gotham knows what is what and what is where. Come join us for private access to designer showrooms to shop at wholesale followed by a roster of all the best sample sales in town. Forget the Department Stores. This is oh so much chicer.

Here are but a few names we are excited about. Starting in NOV

Zadig & Voltaire
Parker NYC

Tracey Reese
Marc Jacobs

Why You Must Go to Central Park when in NYC

April 23rd, 2017

You may live in a lovely city chock full of parks and wonder why bother visiting This park on your precious vacation to New York.

Yes, this expansive 2.5 mile long famous place has a Zoo, Broadway Baseball leagues, lovely restaurants, a carousel and skating rink, running paths galore and a million nooks and crannies to read a book, meditate or take a nap. All good reasons, but that is not the most important one.

We, who have been living in and observing New York and its inhabitants for 3 decades know that if you want to see real New Yorkers, this is the place to go. Our Oasis.

On a Sunday, especially in Spring and Fall, the park is doused with thousands of .. wait for it.. New Yorkers RELAXING! Away from our lightless apartments or stress filled office cubicles, the inhabitants of this city are actually kind and gentle people, who will caress and guide visitors with generosity of spirit as unknown on a Tuesday in Midtown.

Do not come to NYC and miss Central Park. It is worth the visit.
