Your Complete Guide to Shopping in New York

October 17th, 2019 | Shopping

New York City has some of the best shopping in the world. Here, at the Manhattan Hotel Times Square blog, we are used to pointing our guests in the direction of top stores, deals and great shopping experiences in the city. If you want all of this information in one place, scroll down! 

The Best Stores in Times Square

Our Midtown is hard to beat. We’re in Times Square, just steps from the world’s best shops and brands. The most popular clothing stores in Times Square include H&M, Old Navy, Gap, Forever 21 and Levi’s, to name a few. If you believe that bigger is indeed better, go straight to the largest stores in Times Square: Apple Store, Adidas Store, M&Ms World and the Disney Store. Shop for shoes at Steve Madden, Skechers, Niketown or Foot Locker. 

Where to Find New York Souvenirs

After buying a few new outfits, you might want to think about souvenirs for your home. If you need ideas, read our blog post on essential NYC souvenirs that cover the iconic  “I ♥ NY” items, as well as merchandise from museums or Broadway shows. 

Do you want something other than a figurine of Lady Liberty? We have great suggestions for original and unique souvenirs. Choose from locally sourced delicacies at Grand Central Market or peruse the many handcrafted gifts from Unique Gifts NYC. 

Holiday Shopping in New York

From November to January, New York City becomes a holiday paradise. If you need to get into the Christmas spirit, shop at our favorite holiday shops, including Christmas and City in Little Italy. Another New York tradition is its holiday markets. Located in Bryant Park, Grand Central or Columbus Circle, these quaint attractions have vendors selling cozy drinks, handmade ornaments, artwork and much more.

Another way to make the most of your shopping trip is by visiting New York’s flea and food markets. The Chelsea Market, Grand Bazaar in Columbus Circle or the Union Square Greenmarket will surprise you with vintage clothes, accessories or fresh and delicious treats. 

Before going back to your room after a long day of shopping, make sure to stop by New York’s most iconic stores: see the grand Macy’s Herald Square or order a Frrrozen Hot Chocolate at the famous Serendipity 3. 

Get your shopping spree started by booking your comfortable NYC room at the Manhattan at Times Square. You’ll be within walking distance of most of these stores and markets!
