The Woodbury Premium Outlets are within an hour and a half north of Manhattan. You’ll need a whole day and good shoes to explore the place. As if I did not understand this place is huge! There are over 200 shops, some luxury like Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci, Versace, Calvin Klein, and plenty of other shops with ‘normal’ prices as Samsonite, Tumi, Lacoste, Gap and Timberland. In my opinion Woodbury is the place to shop when you want to do in one day. Therefore we organize custom to this mall (excursions more information Excursion to the Woodbury Outlets).

The Broadway Mall is a regional shopping center located in Long Island. This shopping center is in the village of Hicksville which has a significant history. Originally the Broadway Mall was a mall outdoors called Middle Island Shopping Plaza. Broadway Mall is the only center in the area commercial having a multiplex, 12 Broadway Multiplex Cinema. Some of the shops on this site include Macy’s, Target, IKEA, American Eagle Outfitters, and Zales.

Clothing stores in Manhattan Low Cost

Strawberry is a cheap clothing store fashion in New York, known for tenders for women. Here is a wide selection of styles of shoes that are not usually found in other stores. Clothing and accessories are also cheaper than you would normally find in the most famous New York stores. In short, you can easily get a lot of clothes for only $ 100. High heels are a bit expensive prices almost like Macy’s, so his clothes and bags are better.

Ann Taylor Loft is the most affordable store Ann Taylor and specializes in work clothes for women and casual clothes (certainly the best place to shop for work clothes). They have a great selection of accessories along with a small selection of shoes. Petites also have a section for women with smaller sizes. Everything is neat and the employees are very friendly. It is best that you never have to wait long for the testers.

Shops in Chinatown and Canal Street

As for purchases of imitations, Canal Street is a main point which you find cheap merchandise like clothes and shoes, handbags knock-off brand, shirts, jewelry, perfumes and even furniture and foods like meats and seafood. You can also walk through the side streets of Mulberry, Mott and Elizabeth where you will see unique and exciting products that cross this great neighborhood. If you need to shop to bring souvenirs, then you have to visit Canal Street. I assure you that you will not leave empty handed!

Electronics stores

Located near Penn Station, B & H Photo and Video is one of the largest suppliers of photographic equipment in the United States, and possibly the dream of any photographer. As soon as you walk through the doors, you’ll see bags and packages walking the tapes in the ceiling (for security reasons, which is good because you have your hands free while you shop). The process of purchasing an item is fascinating. After choosing it, you leave it to the clerk of the section. A rail system winds through the store and the item will magically appear in a box at the end, after paying in a second phase. All your items are packaged and ready to go!

The largest Apple store in the world is New York! It is located on Fifth Avenue and close to the southern exit of Central Park . It does not miss it because you can see the big Apple logo engraved on transparent glass. In the Apple Store you can take the stairs or the elevator going down to test the latest gadgets like the Apple iPhone or Apple Watch 6s. Best of all, its open 24 hours a day.

A final option for cheaper electronics products is entering the bazaar type shops where you can bargain with dependents. They are all over the city, mainly in Midtown.

Toys and children’s stores

Toys R Us is in Times Square and shop the world’s largest toy. Upon entering the store, the first thing you notice is the large central wheel, with figures of Dora, My Little Pony and Bob the Builder. Confirm walk more to the store, you’ll see a huge house of Barbie and giant sized dinosaur that moves as if alive. Toys R Us is a fantastic store for children but also for adults. I think the Toys R Us in Times Square is a must when visiting the Big Apple.

If you love Disney and I then have to go to Disney Store. This small magic shop is located in Times Square. ?! How could anyone not enter this place! The store has two floors with tons of stuffed animals, shirts, mugs and more adorable costumes and outfits I’ve seen for children. There is Disney music and also has a nice section devoted to Star Wars and Marvel superheroes for boys. At the end of my visit I was finally convinced to book a trip to the most magical place on earth!


Any girl wants a diamond, so how could I not visit Tiffany’s. It is true that most of the time there are many people there and sometimes you cannot see anything. But do not worry, my advice is to do as did Audrey Hepburn and find an employee that you can teach Tiffany jewelry. It is a world famous store still selling high quality and very expensive items like jewelry, diamonds and pearls. Even if you cannot afford to make a purchase, Tiffany is always a great place to visit!

An estimated 90 percent of the diamonds entering the United States through New York’s diamond district. There are 2,600 independent companies located in the district and almost all of them work diamonds or jewelry. For many it is a unique shopping experience and is also near Rockefeller Center and theater district. The jewelry stores are mainly located on 5th Avenue and Madison Avenue between 50 and 60.
