Eco-Fashion & Sightseeing in NYC


New York City is hands down one of the coolest places on the planet, especially for its endless opportunities to shop. As an intrepid fashionista, you’ve chosen the best place to pick up the hottest items that are always ahead of the fashion curve.

See how NYC is going green.

One way to snag the best deals on designer items is to hit up a sample sale. Held in tucked-away warehouses and hotels, there are dozens of sample sales happening every month. Keep an eye on your favourite designer’s website or Twitter feed to find out if they’re hosting a sale that coordinates with your visit, or check out one of the many multi-brand sales to peruse racks full of gorgeous items. For hot eco-looks, check out Sustainable Fashion Outlook 2013 for hot eco-designers, and Brooklyn-based online retail shop Modavanti.

New York is also home to some of the best and biggest department stores in the world. You can spend hours wandering around the aisles at Macy’s, located in the bustling heart of Herald Square, while the Upper East Side’s Bloomingdale’s covers a city block and carries an overwhelming collection of designer pieces that can only be found in NYC. If trendy, individual boutiques are more your style, you can’t go wrong with a stroll down 5th Avenue. Here you can find the latest items by up-and-coming designers, and enjoy the personalised service that comes with the boutique atmosphere.

As fun as shopping all day in NYC is, it can also be exhausting so afterward you’ll want to treat yourself to something relaxing. The perfect cure for sore feet after a long day is a ride on Circle Line Sightseeing Cruises, just as the city comes alive with lights. No trip to New York is complete without seeing the beautiful, inspiring skyline and the boat trip will award you views of the Statue of Liberty, Yankee Stadium, and the Brooklyn Bridge. There are Circle Line Downtown coupons available online and you can get discounts for other popular attractions too.

After your day of shopping and seeing the city from the vantage point of a Circle Line Cruise boat, you’ll be in love with New York City and want to come back every year. No matter when you come the city is constantly changing and offering new events, things to see and places to shop!
