The arena where New York definitely has us beat is shopping—and no, we won't concede to the Red Sox versus Yankees rivalry (ever). Whether Uniqlo is the first place you stop on a weekend getaway or the enormous Bloomingdale's flagship, Racked NY begs Boston visitors to think outside the box when it comes to retail haunts.
From exclusive department store Bergdorf Goodman to indie mainstays like Opening Ceremony and Bird, our buddies in the Big Apple also recommend the internationally-known Brooklyn Flea outdoor market and another spot across the East River called Brooklyn Charm for custom jewelry. Join your fellow Bostonians at Topshop (until the day one opens here) and get your paperback fill at McNally Jackson Books before hopping on the bus home.
