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.

What to Expect on a NYC Sweet 16 or Teen Shopping Program with Shop Gotham

Teens love to shop.  Indeed they do. On a recent Shop Gotham program in SoHo/Nolita12 teens from Cleveland returned home with bags ablaze with goodies and certainly no one broke the bank or worse, angered their parents!

They commenced their day at an indoor market for young indie designers.  30 designers under one roof offer everything from leather jackets to candles.

Then on to 8 more NYC cool stores which offered selections the girls could not find at home.

Along the way, their fashionable guide regaled them with stories about the area  of Soho and Nolita – once a thriving art community, shared fashion tips, helped select pieces which were just right for the season and pointed out where celebrities live.

The 3 hours concluded with special cupcakes for the honoree from a famous tv bakery

Shop Gotham Sweet 16’s are available all year round for the lucky shopper. For details, see www.shopgotham.com

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:
