The cobbled streets of Soho are packed with designer boutiques and luxury brands such as Louis Vuitton, Burberry and Prada.
The area is popular with Manhattan’s fashion followers seven days a week.
A crowded weekend shopping destination, though perhaps not quite as popular as the famous Soho, Nolita contains fewer brands and more boutiques.
Nolita’s parallel north-south spines are Elizabeth, Mott and Mulberry Streets between East Houston and Kenmare Streets.
CHELSEA AND THE MEATPACKING DISTRICT
Well known for lively shopping and high fashion, Chelsea (west of Sixth Avenue between 15th and 30th Streets) is home to such designer boutiques as Comme des Garçons and Balenciaga.
In the neighboring Meatpacking District, you’ll find Jeffrey, Stella McCartney, Alexander McQueen and more among fresh galleries, gourmet food stores and eclectic antique stores farther toward the Village.
