NEW YORK CITY
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.
