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

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.

Discount B’Way Tix and Free Things to Do! December NYC 2016
New York’s newest place for cheap Broadway tickets isn’t a place at all. In fact, you’re probably holding it right now—or at least it’s within easy reach! That’s right, it’s your cell phone. The app TodayTix has picked up where TDF left off. No one wants to stand in long lines in the middle of Times Square, especially when temperatures go south and the snow starts to fall. Instead, the younger generation downloads the TodayTix app for free! It lists cheap tickets available that day (hence the term “TODAY” Tix), and on certain shows, for performances in the near future. TodayTix also offers lottery options for a selection of other productions. (Note: only one or two lottery tickets to each show might be available, compared to the hundreds of people who may have entered. So if you are desperate to see a certain show, you might want to make plans other than the lottery.)
As of Thanksgiving week in New York City, the Rockette Christmas Spectacular had tickets on sale for $39, and Cirque du Soleil’s Paramour was on sale for $55, along with a $35 lottery option. TodayTix subscribers could enter the lottery to see Sutton Foster in Sweet Charity for $35. Chicago and Cats were listed at $50 and $59, respectively. Tickets could be purchased for all of these shows throughout the week. Many, many more shows were available: School of Rock, Matilda, Fiddler on the Roof, The Cherry Orchard, Kinky Boots, and more. Some off-Broadway companies are on there as well, such as the dance company Pilobolus, Othello: the Remix, Sleep No More, and the Keen Company’s Tick, Tick… Boom!
So next time you come to New York, do what the locals do! Download TodayTix for free, purchase a ticket, and then meet a TodayTix concierge at the theatre. He or she will be clearly identifiable. You provide ID, they hand you a ticket, and you go straight to your seat. It couldn’t be easier! Don’t pay through the nose for a Broadway show. And no more standing in line for hours to pay cash at the TDF booth!
