Visiting New York This September

September 9th, 2015

Packing for a trip away, especially for a fashion mecca such as New York City can be a challenge. September has arrived, Fashion Week has literally begun yet Fall is not quite in full swing. Use the final few summer days – perhaps even weeks – to rock an array of pastel and nude looks before the new season well and truly kicks in. When choosing what to wear for a September in New York at any age, you have the opportunity to keep it light and bright.

Here at Shop Gotham we recommend packing a lightweight cream sweater which you can pair with white skinnies and beige flats. For smooth day-to-evening transition, add a nude leather jacket. Make the most of accessorising with a large black tote for days out and we cannot help but love a dark burgundy/vamp lip for the right amount of color. The best thing about keeping it neutral is that you can pack a few extra dark items again for the perfect day-to-evening looks. See our moodboard inspiration courtesy of Polyvore below:

“Soho tour was the highlight of our Trip!”

April 20th, 2015
As a small and local New York business, Shop Gotham truly values feedback from our guests. A very special thank you to Harriet from the UK for sharing her Soho and Nolita Shopping Tour experience on TripAdvisor and giving us a 5 Star Review. We hope to shop with you next time you visit NYC!

Reviewed April 3, 2015

“Guide was FABULOUS! Even with 6 other guests along, she Catered to our interests and was very knowledgeable about the area. We were given a great map and it was suggested we use it to mark places we wanted to return to, which turned out to be an excellent tip. A couple of English stores have just arrived to NYC and we especially enjoyed those. The time goes very fast, so plan to stick around after and make time to go back to the street vendor selling one of kind, beautiful things on Prince and Mulberry. Great program.”

Here is a small sneak peak into a few new stores in the area that have opened up this winter:
Classic basics, Men’s and women’s clothes with a Gap/Joe fresh feel. The best part? The sale section in the back of the store
H&M sister brand opened their first US location this October in Soho. European style merchandise: apparel between $50-100, accessories ($10-50), bath/home products and features a HUGE shoe bar in the back of the store.

Small gem stone/mixed metals shop that opened up in January. The store originated in Park Slope and still have store there, but this is first NYC location. The sell a variety of men’s and women’s jewelry/gifts: “finer” jewelry (bridal collection) towards the back, less expensive bracelets, charms, keychains, temp tattoos, rings and gifts towards the front.
Very friendly, welcoming and educating staff. They are ecstatic to tell you a story for each stone-regarding it’s origin or it’s historical uses. Turf floor, books with gemstone info are scattered about and the shop girls hand out cards that describe each stone you are interested in. Floor to ceiling hand made gem stone jewelry-most pieces raining between $150-250 but there are some less expensive pieces/small gifts.

December 8th, 2014
Looking for things to do in NYC this December? Check out our insider “NYC Musts” from your local New Yorkers:

  • Museum at FIT opens a new exhibit exploring the Counterfeit Industry and how it affects the fashion world, Faking It. “Fashion should slip out of your hands. The very idea of protecting the seasonal arts is childish. One should not bother to protect that which dies the minute it is born.” Coco Chanel

Summertime Activities in New York

July 2nd, 2014
There are so many exciting activities to partake in during the summertime. One of our personal faves is the Chelsea Highline located on 10th Avenue along the West Side. Walk this historic railroad line raised far above the traffic on the streets, admire the plants and greenery, and take photos of gorgeous NYC views!

Start at 34th St Highline entrance in the morning, take the railroad path all the way down to the end into the West Village and then head to Soho for a Soho Nolita Shop Gotham Shopping Tour-it’s a perfect way to spend a summer day outdoors in New York. Walk the areas that New Yorkers enjoy most-Chelsea, West Village, Soho and Nolita all in one day!
