NEW YORK CITY

DRIFT Travel magazine - - Contents -

Whether you are on the hunt for a vin­tage trea­sure or avant-garde de­signer mer­chan­dise, New York City (NYC) is the place to be. Aside from the in­vite-only cat­walks dur­ing New York Fash­ion Week, this city is home to some of the world’s most fa­mous and largest de­part­ment stores: Bloom­ing­dales, Macy’s, Bar­neys and Saks. For some­thing a lit­tle dif­fer­ent, take a stroll along Lower East Side (pre­vi­ously dubbed the bar­gain dis­trict) and stop by vin­tage stores and flea mar­kets for a spot of savvy shop­ping. Nolita is the place to see and to be seen for high fash­ion at high prices, or stop by the open air Green Flea Mar­ket for a vin­tage gem.

Where to stay: Lo­cated within walk­ing dis­tance from the iconic Soho, Greenwich Vil­lage and Union Square neigh­bor­hoods are the trendy East Vil­lage Apart­ments. Af­ter hit­ting the shops, book tick­ets to the theatre, go sight­see­ing or visit a fine art mu­seum.
