Plenty of New York's high end make their purchases in Short Hills or the Americana.

Another poster makes another great point too- that realistically, Honolulu HI also has a much more epic shopping scene than New York City- with a few exclusives that certainly can't be found stateside.

Throwing off names of things that exist in America's largest city is all well and good- but the shopping scene is matched by plenty of other places.

I've always found SF's shopping to be better than NYC for me as a casual purchaser.
After all, Macy's isn't as large- but there's a separate mens and womens stores and combined it's far larger than Macy's NYC.

And we are getting a Nordstrom in 2018. Neiman Marcus is opening its first Manhattan store within the next 3-5 years, as well!

Retailers recognize that this is the world capital!

And oh, yeah, we have FAO Schwarz, Toys R Us, and are in the process of getting a Hamleys!

And we have M&Ms World, The Disney Store, and The Hershey's Store!

Only in the world capital!
Lol and payments to go alone with it

I guess it pains some of you to admit that you were wrong all along and New York is the undisputed shopping city in the United States so you're going to keep wailing and throwing out names like San Francisco (Macy's? Hilarious - trashy compared to even Bloomingdales) and Honolulu (LOL, what?).

Keep going.. and amuse me.

Top retailers pay these prices for a reason. Economics 101.

Which is why they charge a premium. Fifth avenue is basically a tourist trap.

If you like wasting money needlessly, I've got this bridge in Brooklyn that you might be interested in

I shopped at the Prada store a few times - one time they came around serving champagne to everybody, that was cool. But I still prefer shopping online.

Undisputed means no one disputes it.
You have people disputing it.

Your posts begin to show through not only some signals of ignorance, but a very shallow pool of experience.

Ebay for WHATEVER you need.

If you take away Saks Bloomies and Macy's shopping in NYC is no better than going to your local "all in one' mall...coach nike addidas urban outfitters....etc. All the typical crap you can find in the heartland is right here. Better to buy online and avoid tax.....and flakey sales staff.

People are brainwashed that NYC has everything. It really doesn't.

* What used to separate NYC from other cities were the numerous mom and pop shops that stocked their shelves according to personal tastes not on orders from corporate HQ's

agree 100% I do 99.9% of my shopping online. You can find all the sizes you need, plus it comes to you nice and new, not picked over and tried on by tons of people.

But even I have to admit the Mall at Short Hills in NJ is amazing.

It's laughable that people are even arguing this.

Turnbull & Asser is only found in one U.S. city: New York.

And as LL said, Tom Ford's flagship is far greater than anything you'll find online.

LL is destroying all comers in this thread. And I am greatly enjoying it. There's New York and everything else. That's that.

LL and yourself can pick out curtains together.
There's New York, and there's everything else- shopping exists worldwide- and NYC's shopping scene is absolutely matched by many cities far smaller than it.

That's because NYC is a huge city and a huge tourist destination with 50% of itself in poverty.

Here's one thing you can't buy in NYC... a Gun.
For that, it's unmatched.

... and that's that.
