  • The street prices are cheaper. There's also a wider variety of stores in NYC than there is in the normal city.

  • I get great bargains, dresses in the fashion district for woman and kids alot cheaper on certain days, if your lucky you can get them for 10.00 bucks. They open for the public usually during the weekdays only....

    lots of stores, with lots of prices, and don't be afraid to walk and shop and shop and sight see..... New York, New York....

  • It's just a very fashion-centric city. We have a lot of designers housed here. There are constant fashion shows. In this sense, we have great variety and selection, but it's VERY expensive. We do get treated to sample sales where we can buy last season items as marked down as 80%, but often times it's 80% off of a 4k do the math. There are street vendors that will sell you "cashmere" scarfs for $10 dollars and you do find great homemade fashion at street/farmers markets. Main stream fashion is no better than anywhere else. We have great boutiques, but again SO expensive.

  • Ive never been there but i think it would be really fun cause i imagine all the women are dressed up and into the fashion. Ive always told my husband we are not going to NY until I have like $10,000 just go to shopping there. Thats the main reason I want to go.

  • It's just more fun to be there. The stores are the same - same prices. We have the GAP, Lord & Taylor, Old Navy Bloomies, Macy's. NYC is not cheap. You can get fun things that street vendors sell that is cheap. Like hats, gloves and pashminas. Books sometimes. But the prices in the stores are the same all over. It's the pace of the city itself that is so exciting. But don't let anyone tell you it's cheap!
