New York City is known across the world for its unrivalled shopping experiences, attracting food, film and fashion fanatics from all over the globe to marvel at the iconic yellow taxis, endless rows of stores and glittering skyline. From Sarah Jessica Parker in Sex & The City, to Blake Lively in Gossip Girl, to Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, some of the nation’s favourite icons have graced the streets and given the city its undeniable sense of style.


Visitors will be familiar with well-known hotspots such as Fifth Avenue, home to recognisable household names such as Bloomingdales, Macy’s and Barney’s New York. There are also quirky spots such as the Chelsea Markets next to the scenic High Line, whilst Williamsburg has an endless supply of unassuming vintage shops for unique buys.
