A jaw-dropping department store of home design treasures that feels like a whimsical movie set. Hundreds of chandeliers, mountains of rugs, thousands of dainty tabletop pieces – beautifully displayed in vignettes on six sprawling floors. Minimalists: brace yourselves.
Six floors of antique printed tomes, historical documents, botanical posters, Civil War maps, and other bibliophile treasures from this family run institution (since 1925).
A tiny, well lit shop filled to the brim with finely crafted fedoras, fascinators, berets, and cloche hats. Each piece is a very special work of art.
The ultimate downtown Manthattan department store returns to its original Chelsea location with gleaming new displays and the same old fashion-forward labels. Can't afford the price tags on the modern classics? Then time your visit to their epic summer warehouse sales.
Very fancy department store experience for the Holly Golightly type. On a red carpet shopping spree? Start here. Views of Central Park from the dressing room.
This throw-back secondhand shop is a love letter to vintage cookbooks, culinary ephemera, and etiquette books.
A stunning townhouse wunderkammer of rare natural specimens, taxidermy, and curiosities expertly curated among global design items.
It's hot. It's cool. It's oh-so delightfully Japanese. Rei Kawakubo's visually daring, multi-level concept shop features fashion-forward labels (Comme des Garcons, Junya Wantanabe, Supreme, Nikelab) inspiring merchandising, and a tiny outpost of the one-scone-and-you're-forever-a-devottee Rose Bakery. What makes it even cooler is that it's located in the decidedly very uncool Murray Hill neighborhood.
It's not a clothing shop, it's a lifestyle — and it looks a lot like a 19th century calvary man. Gorgeous handmade suits (from selvage fabric), boots, and button-downs are half the battle. Clean up in the barber shop out back, then fit in just perfectly with their restaurant/lodge next door.
A spirited collection of obscurities and striking ephemera including Derian’s signature découpage glassware and Hugo Guinness drawings.
Woodsy, folksy, precious objects, statement furniture, gothic marvels, and the designer’s famous handmade pillows. Don't leave without peeking into the jewelry cases.
The city's indisputable fashion clubhouse reinvents itself constantly by teaming up with all sorts of folks (designers, directors, Hollywood starlets) on inventive collaborations, quirky outposts (like their gift shop at the Ace Hotel) and fashiony happenings.
Just try and stump the clerks. They raise music geekdom to another level at this independent record store and DJ hangout. You can pick up tickets at the in-store box office for live shows and underground parties.
The old stalwart has eighteen miles worth of secondhand books, plus a floor dedicated to rareties.
