I wouldn't even fuck with Williamsburg, too much time commuting. Lafayette, Prince, Spring and Central Park. It also depends on if this is your first time to NYC where I would hope you would see more than a few streetwear shops.

bit more detail. like you got a 5 hour layover at an airport or somethin? or are you just passing through the city on a road trip? things like that would severely inhibit your time. like if you were at JFK, there would really be no point going anywhere in the city.

This is cool, coz I will be in NYC this weekend but will only have about 4 hours this Sunday to shop, I plan to hit the spots in SoHo... I'll try to stop by Nom De Guerre also, I think I'll call them first to see if they got Spruce...

I use the same order everytime i go: Nom, Atrium, Flight Club, DQM, Supreme, Clientele, Recon, Blades, Union, SSUR,Sugar Headquarters, Alife, and lastly Rival

this i find is the most covenient route takes usually around 4 hours and u have a good amount of time in each shop

I MOVE WITH NOE FEAR BECAUSE I SMOOTH DISAPPEAR

I've become more efficient/productive since I shop while I skate. So I would hit:

Famous Friends

Foley and Corrina Men

Odin

Atelier

SevenNY

I would then have extra 2 hours to read a book/nap in the park

if you only have 5 hours, i would stay downtown. lower east side, soho, nolita, and east village. hit up at least some of these shops: reed space, sugarhead quarters, alife, apc, stussy, recon/nort, classic kicks, dqm, and famous friends.
