You lucky traveler, the weather in NYC this summer has been nothing less than SPECTACULAR. Thus Far, days are in the low 80’s F, eves are a warm comfortable low 70’s.

DO NOT wear: Genie pants with a tailored jacket – unless you have such the cool style and just the right cut, that you know how to pull this off

Student Group Shopping Tours are so much fun!

November 25th, 2013
A custom shopping program took place this past Saturday in Soho. The Student Group Tour consisted of 500 students from over the world. This 4 hour tour commenced in the West Village, the historical NYC hub for music and home to the rock/folk movement of the 60’s and 70’s. Our students learned about historical landmarks, cast iron architecture, historical music venues, and major musicians and artists of that time. This tour also included a meet and greet with fashion and jewelry designers, exclusive shopping discounts at our partner stores in SoHo, as well as the exploration of the beautiful and unique Soho/Nolita neighborhoods.
If you are looking for something fun and educational to do for your students visiting NYC, let us customize a shopping tour for your student group! Rest assured, you will enjoy it too!


What to wear when visiting NYC in July

July 19th, 2013

Keep it light! That is- your fabrics, silhouettes and colors this summer. Sheer tops, printed silk trousers, summer sundresses and anything from white to champagne! Simplicity is key, the classic white T shirt never goes out of style. Don’t forget to pack a layering piece, such as a colorful blazer or tailored denim vest. Even on the hottest day of July the stores in Soho can get chilly! If your summer wardrobe is weighing you down do not hesitate to book a Shop Gotham shopping tour to lighten it up! Our guides are chic and can help you capitalize on your best looks this summer.

Five Reasons to Love NYC Parks in the Summer!

May 23rd, 2013

New Yorkers earn some serious outdoor time after surviving our long, snowy, wet winters.  So the moment the temperature hits 70, we head to the sidewalk cafes, the waterfront, and especially the parks!  Here are five fantastic reasons to love NYC Parks!

1.  Shakespeare in the Park

From late May to mid August free tickets are available on a first-come, first served basis for these star-studded, only-in-NYC performances.  For once the hottest ticket in town can’t be found on Broadway!  This year the Public Theatre presents Comedy of Errors and a musical version of Love’s Labour’s Lost.  These productions have been known to move to Broadway, so see it this summer (for free) so you can say you saw it first!

2.  Summerstage

City Parks Foundation hosts free concerts in over 750 venues citywide.  But the most popular by far is Summerstage, which brings A-list talent like Adele and the Indigo Girls to Rumsey Playfield, off of West 72nd Street.  These concerts get incredibly crowded, and tickets are almost impossible to get, so check out the Summerstage link and plan your summer accordingly!

3.  HBO Bryant Park Summer Films

The lawn at Bryant Park opens at 5:00 PM, the movies start around 9:00.  Not a space can be found by 6:00 PM, so popular is this NYC summer tradition of free classic movies outdoors.  Pack a picnic, invite good company, and prepare to settle down for a night you won’t forget.  This year’s offerings range from Tootsie to ET.  And it’s all free!

4.  Free Yoga in Bryant Park

Offered twice weekly, this free yoga series provides challenging vinyasa flow to literally hundreds of yogis throughout the City.  For the past ten years, Lululemon Athletica has been sponsoring this event, providing instructors and mats for New Yorkers in need of Zen.  Namaste!

5.  Broadway in Bryant Park

Those reading this blog now see why Bryant Park is quickly becoming the favorite park of the locals!  Every summer Bryant Park hosts hundreds of free events, twice a year they host Fashion Week, and once a year they host a spectacular gift bazaar, complete with a free ice skating rink.  But Broadway in Bryant Park holds a special place for Shop Gotham tour guides, most of whom confess an unadulterated love of musical theatre.  Every Thursday throughout July and August, the most popular Broadway shows perform their biggest hit.  The ONLY way to see Broadway for free!
