Hello everyone! Today we are going to show you a wonderful journey in New-York city. You’ll find, where you can buy amazing stuff, big varieties of different shops and other interesting things about this country. So let’s begin!

What do you imagine in your head when you think about New-York? Empire State building, big shops, varieties of restaurants, and a lot of celebrities? Well, that’s right. But let us take your hand and begin our journey from Fifth Avenue. It’ll be your perfect place if you are in love with window-shopping. You can find a perfect outfit from a famous designer over there.

Fifth Avenue

Fifth Avenue has been a center of shopping elegance in New York since the 1930th. What you can find here? Put your attention on Bergdorf and take a look at a new collection. After that, you can visit Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels, Harry Winston, and Tiffany. If you don’t want to lose your money, you can go shopping at the end of the season. 

Union Square

This square is located between Broadway and Bowery Road. Today it is a huge shopping area, where you can buy almost everything. Gifts for your friends (because you’re in New York, choose something incredible, not just a statuette of the Empire State Building).

The best gift for your friends can be something with its own history. You can choose handmade gifts. For example, handmade soaps, scarves, and craft items. When you become tired, you can have a rest in a fancy place, for example, Think Coffee. This is one of the best coffee places in this square, plus not so expensive as Starbucks. If New York has good weather, you can take a blanket for a farmer’s market and have a picnic in Central Park.
