There’s nothing quite like a warm summer day spent roaming around the streets of Manhattan. The sights, the sounds, the smells. I try to make the trip to NYC about once a year, but this year was very different for us, considering we now had a one year old in tow! This meant we avoided subways (aka crowds, germs, stairs, stress) and explored the city by foot, which was surprisingly enjoyable! We stumbled upon shops & neighborhoods that we otherwise wouldn’t have found ourselves in, and I tried to make a note of which ones really caught my fancy! This isn’t an extensive guide, but it’s enough to get you started on a really great path around the city. For reference, we stayed in the Flatiron District at the Ace Hotel (a personal favorite) and started most of our days by walking south on Broadway or 5th. Let’s jump right into it!
Artists & Fleas: 568 Broadway
Large space for local vendors selling jewelry, vintage clothes, art, gifts, etc.
Louis Vuitton: 116 Greene St
Their SoHo location is my favorite!
Balenciaga: 148 Mercer St
They have separate men & women’s shops across the street from each other!
Outdoor Voices: 251 Centre St
High quality athleisure with modern color pallets. I’m obsessed with their skort and the exercise dress.
Mango: 561 Broadway
We don’t have these in MN so stopping here is an absolute must for me!
