Synopses & Reviews
From stilettos to sneakers, ceramics to estate jewelry, The New York Book of Shops covers the best boutiques the city has to offer, from the trendiest to the tiniest and everything in between. In its first incarnation as New Yorks 50+ Best Little Shops, this portable guide took shoppers to the citys best boutiques, secret sources, and insider favorites, neighborhood by neighborhood. This new edition covers all the listings from the original (updated for this edition) plus new features and sidebars, and of course, more shops. There are cafés, tearooms, and bars where weary shoppers can rest their feet; the best tailors, repair shops, and trim stores; bookstores and galleries; and furniture stores. And for shoppers haunted by their attachment to material goods, there are even a few yoga studios. Revised and updated with all-new listings, this is the essential first purchase for anyone—native New Yorker or not—planning a shopping trip in the Big Apple.
