The breadth and depth of shopping in New York City can be daunting—where to start? Err, where to stop? Racked NY editors Tiffany Yannetta and Nicola Fumo have mapped out eleven essential NYC stores that make the city's shopping scene one-of-a-kind.
Get your luxe, Old New York fix at Bergdorf Goodman uptown, then cool off from all those four figure price tags with the world's largest Uniqlo down the block. For a boutique experience, a new wave of young store owners are cropping up with exciting edits—Owen, Dagny + Barstow and Fivestory all represent different parts of the city and different points of view, with a common thread of cool. A steady stream of French imports, a waterfront flea market (with incredible people watching) and a mostly-under-$100 cure for fast fashion fatigue can all be found in the city's streets, if you know where to look (hint: it's after the jump)
