I am going to Manhattan for a few days, and then Brooklyn for a few days next week. Any suggestions of where the cool stores are? I am not looking for retails chains or department stores. I would like to find some unique designers and stores. Looking for casual wear: jeans, tshirts, sneakers, belts, accessories, etc. I heard there ae goood stores in the East Village and SOHO. In Brooklyn, I heard Williamsburg and Carroll Gardens. The stores I have on my radar so far in Manhhatan are: G Star, Odin, Opening Ceremony. This may give you an idea of the type of stuff I am looking for. In Brooklyn, I have nothing lined up yet. I am hoping to get a list so I don't end up wasting too much time looking for stores. Thanks in advance for the help!
