Our Top NYC Picks Of The Month

It goes without saying that New York City can be overwhelming. Here at Shop Gotham, we not only want to take you on the best shopping tours in the city, but we also want you to see things that are off the beaten—things only New Yorkers would know. Each month we will bring to you our Top picks of the city; whether they are places to visit, top tips and general advice that will help make your trip to the world’s greatest city, one to remember. Here it goes:

  1. Brandy’s Piano Bar, E 84th Street: An evening at a quaint bar is the perfect follow up to a shopping tour with us! Brandy’s Piano Bar on the Upper East Side is as old as New York but still makes for a fabulous evening of entertainment. Sing out loud with wonderfully talented broadway folks and enjoy a lovely drink while you are there. It certainly keeps the crowds coming! Visit: http://brandyspianobar.com/brandys1
  2. Link phone charging stations: Link have teamed up with the city to bring you very convenient charging stations. No need to worry about making sure your battery is full! You will be ready to Instagram your amazing day in the city in no time once you pitstop at one of these.4-1
  3. Alex Bittar Jewelry Sample Sale: Known for awe-inspiring costume and fine jewelry, be sure to make it down to the Alex Bittar sample sale this week on 20 W 36th St. Thurs-Sun 10am-7pm.
  4. Lace it up! Our favorite spring/summer trend is in full swing. We cannot get enough of lace-up flats—the perfect shoe to wear whilst exploring the city all day and still looking completely stylish. These are a must have!

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.

Soho & Nolita NYC Stores September 2012. Piperlime and Christian Siriano

September 16th, 2012

With the ever-changing retail landscape of Soho and Nolita, it was time to troll the streets and see what’s new (what’s belly up) and whats wortwhile. Today we went to the Piperlime and Christian Siriano stores, both of which opened in past 3 weeks.

Piperlime: This fresh big store– the only bricks and morter one of this popular on-line company — offers mid range women’s apparel, accessories and footwear. Here you wont find originality, but rather items from Rachel Zoe,   Splendid, Olivia Palermo, BCBG and about 12 other designers. A good one-stop shopping excursion in lieu of a visit to Bloomies. The large shoes and boots section has worthwhile offerings in the $150- $300 price point. Overall: good addition to Soho for those who find the area overrun with chains and unaffordable boutiques. Piperlime, 121 Wooster St, between Prince and Spring

Christian Siriano: High hopes dashed with this store.Felt  like so many of the individual boutiques (with short lives) in NYC. Designer’s inspiration vs what women want to wear. At first glance, this small store does not even inspire a thorough glance.  Dark and drab dresses and separates in the $300 – $600 category.  Funny, but the online store feels fresher. Feh. Christian Siriano, 252 Elizabeth Street
