Hi I have just got back from NYC today…I went with my family so didnt have time to do THAT much shopping, but did some, and I thought Soho was great, they had the best shops that I saw, but I’m by no means an expert!!

Depends on what you’re looking for.
Manhattan:
If you’re looking for a street of great boutiques with lovely unique stuff, try Nolita. If you’re interested in thrifting, try East Village. If you’re into a mix of boutiques/chain stores then you want SoHo. If you want designer stuff/”the tourist experience” then that’s 5th Ave or Madison.
And you should totally NOT go to chain stores like Abercrombie and Fitch on 5th. That is such a pathetic tourist magnet. Pleeease don’t be one of them.

I don’t think I’ve ever set foot in Abercrombie and Fitch in my life – but I was so shocked to see a constant queue of people waiting to get in!

I don’t know where your from, but two stores I went to on my last trip (that are chains, but not super-huge) and that I really like are Madewell and Uniqlo (I can’t spell, so I’m not sure if that’s right). Both have stores in SoHo.

Beacon’s closet in Brooklyn is great. Huge vintage/secondhand store, really cheap prices. Also, brooklyn is awesome anyways.

Shoes: Gotta go to Otto Tootsi Plohound in SoHo on West Broadway. Awesome, funky shoes!
Uniqlo is a Japanese chain store, I believe. Check out the Prada store in SoHo too. It’s an architectural beauty! East Village, Lower East Side, Greenwich, Little Italy neighborhoods offer great little boutiques. Just check them out. You can’t go wrong in NYC! (This is coming from a NYCer.)
