For that, it's unmatched.
Nonsense, there is still a large supply. And tax free as well.

If I bought that bridge, first thing I'd do is setup small kiosks to rent out to vendors. Lots of foot traffic. Maybe charge a fee to tourists. I think it could be a profitable venture. Of course the city and its taxpayers would still have to chip in for the maintenance since I wouldn't be adding tollbooths.

That is simply not true. No Tom Ford. No Turnbull & Asser. No Smythson of Bond Street.

I could go on and on with listing high-end stores you can only find in New York City (if confined to America, and if not, only London stands a puncher's chance at NYC)

For the sake of accuracy, all of these have web sites for anyone who can afford to shop there.

TOM FORD Online Store

Turnbull & Asser | Turnbull & Asser

Smythson.com

Not all of us are of celebrity status though (yet ). :-)

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!
The lamest post I ever read, Disney store is at almost every mall in America. Last I checked there are more Toysrus in NJ and CT than in NYC.

Who cares about M&M and Hershey's store, it's for tourists and marketing.

Only tourists and rich people shop at those places you mentioned. Who wants to pay 8.6% sales tax.

Most NYers shop online or go to NJ for the same stores you mentioned and less sales tax.

You have not been paying attention. High-end designers like Tom Ford do not sell their full line online.

Please read the entire thread before posting.

Don't bother with logic. You'll just be retorted with more high end stores these clowns could only dream of showing off .

Please. LA, Miami, and Chicago are also all shopping meccas probably at the same level or close to it! And besides, most of those high-end stores are chains and too expensive for the majority of people to shop at!

As someone said, NYC was the shopping capital before it became too commercialized, before all the big chain stores closed down the small, charming mom n pop shops. Because there's nothing but these chains, it's nothing special--and quite frankly, overpriced and overrated just for that reason.
