New York City is known for its luxury shopping, but the real draw of the city's retail scene is its independent boutiques. Though Soho, Midtown, and the Upper East Side are great for megachains, smaller neighborhoods like Nolita and Williamsburg offer up some of Manhattan and Brooklyn's best-kept secrets for tourists. Sure, an afternoon spent at Bergdorf Goodman is great, but why not shop similar labels in a much more intimate setting, say at Fivestory or Owen in the Meatpacking District? Or for an even better taste of local shopping, head to Bird in Brooklyn.
After the jump, Racked NY Editors Tiffany Yannetta and Nicola Fumo suggest ten stores worth visiting on a weekend trip to New York City. Click through for a rundown of each.
