Top Shopping Streets in NYC You Can’t Miss

Many bustling New York City street images feature successful, well-dressed people loaded with shopping bags from some of the world’s most exclusive designers and high-end stores. Considering NYC has some of the most famous shopping districts in the country, one could say that the shopping streets in NYC are as iconic as the city itself.

But where to start?

five top shopping streets in NYC:

1. fifth avenue

Just as Rodeo Drive comes to mind when people think of shopping in California, so does 5th Avenue come to mind when people imagine shopping in NYC. The most famous street for shopping in New York is Fifth Avenue between 49th Street and 60th Street. It’s home to luxury brands’ eye-catching stores. 

Popular stores on this street include Anthropologie, Bergdorf Goodman, Gucci, Kate Spade, American Girl Place (if you plan to bring the children), and—of course—Saks Fifth Avenue.

When you walk along the way downtown, you’ll notice that each section is entirely distinct. Here you’ll find various kinds of stores. For example, Apple Store renovated in 2019 with famous for its glass cube entry also stands here. 

2. historic orchard street shopping district

Located on the Lower East Side, Orchard Street has become a haven for art lovers. ARTIFACT, Perrotin, and Olympia are just a few of the thought-provoking galleries on this NYC street. LAAMS and Coming Soon offer eclectic shopping experiences. A 2021 Vogue article describes this up-and-coming shopping district as having the atmosphere of “an oddly stylish” block party.

Here you will find an alternative style of clothing with all these vintage and artist designs. If you’re interested in uniquely dressing, we highly recommend you to visit this street.

3. east 9th street

Whether you’re searching for a vintage find at stores like Cobblestones and Fabulous Fanny’s, craft beer at Good Beer, or a special gift at Pink Olive, East 9th Street is sure to have what you’re looking for. The East Village is well-known for its art scene. Although it was considered “unloved and overlooked” in the 1980s, it has since become a hub for new trends as well as chic vintage style.

4. lafayette street

Lafayette Street is best known for its endless number of clothing stores. Schedule a private shopping appointment at Scotch & Soda, search for sportswear at SoleStage, and keep up with the latest fashion by visiting Maison Kitsuné. If you love shopping for clothes, we highly recommend setting aside a day (or two!) to visit this wonderland of wearables.

5. 9th and 10th avenues in Chelsea

Chelsea Market is a must-see (or a must-shop) for any foodie or culinary artist. Visit Corkbuzz for a great wine bar experience, and stop by Amy’s Bread for fresh baked goods and an unmatched cup of coffee. If you’re gift shopping, Chelsea Market Baskets has a gift basket to suit every person for every occasion. Be sure to stop by Artists & Fleas, as well, to find local art, vintage fashion, and unique treasures waiting to be discovered.
