New York in 3 Days... HELP??
Posted 15 February 2006 - 04:59 AM
I haven't been on here in a while and I lost my password so here I am in a brand new account.
I'm from Toronto and this Thursday I'm heading out to New York City for 3 1/2 days. What are the best things for me to see? I enjoy shopping, especially denim. Are there any good denim shops out there? Also, any good record stores if anyone knows...
Art gallaries, musiums, great places to eat, etc. I have nothing planned yet and I've never been so I'm excited but I feel like I'll be overwhelmed with all the things there are to do so I wanna get a rough list of things I want to get done so I know where I'm headed.
Thanks so much guys, much love.
PS: ANY ideas are helpful... If you visited once and there's something interesting and memorable, PLEASE let me know!

For records/music, it depends exactly what you want:
-Other Music and Kims are great for new CD stuff -- everything from electronic to hiphop to indie rock to weirdo jazz and reissues
-For Vinyl, I think NY is waaayy overpriced, but there are some good specialy shops:
Jammyland for dub/reggae
A-1 Records for hiphop/funk/jazz/disco
The Sound Library for the same
Beat Street in Brooklyn for new hip-hop/R&B/
For jeans, i'm not too up on it, but Nom de Guerre is a new-ish spot with cool stuff.
Definitely check out the new MoMA, if only for the new building.

Ya I'm definately going to check out the MoMA, I heard it's amazing.

By the way... I forgot to mention, I know NY has ALOT of sneaker stores... I'm looking for some nice original shoes, Nike Dunk STYLE but not nessesarily dunks... I'm kinda sick of them.

partial to DQM for sneakers. (3rd St)
also check out Recon/ Nort on lafayette
Nom De Guerre is alright sometimes for clothes. (broadway)
45 rpm is a good denim bet. (mercer)
use the map to find where stuff is.
