The second most popular question people ask me via email is about shopping in NYC. (The most popular email is about needed to buy a suit and not knowing where to get started). The idea for a NYC shopping map came after getting many of these frequent queries, and so in the heady days of 2008, the ACL shopping guide to NYC took a bow.
Since it has been more than four years, I finally got around to updating the maps and updated it with a host of new shopping destinations. Looking back, it is amazing to see how much the landscape has changed since I first made this list way back when. While this guide is fairly comprehensive, it should be pointed out that the map is a work in progress. If you have suggestions, please leave them in the comments and I will take them into consideration. Next up on the agenda to be updated is NYC drinking and dining, which I hope to have refreshed by next week. Until then, view the full, updated NYC shopping map here and happy hunting.
