Today’s Secrets: Strawberry, J. Crew & Niketown
Your Urban Voyeur is in a generous mood.
So I’m imparting secrets gleaned from years of poking my nose in open shop doors.
Strawberry is a gem! J. Crew on Fifth at 15th Street is a bargain hunter dream come true! And Niketown is where your cool looking friends get their best stuff!
That’s the reason why Niketown on 57th Street is always so crowded! It’s not about bargains but instant street cred. Every single item of clothing and footwear is casual super-cool.
Shoppers rush to Niketown from every country in the world. People watching is the best sport here. The place is a finking Tower of Babel. And of course each foreigner is amazingly turned out.
Back to Strawberry, the women’s discount clothing store on west 57th Street: this store never advertises and its prices amaze.
Strawberry has marked-down current clothing and accessories from Kenneth Cole, Steve Madden, Nine West among others.
Lastly, I am a J.Crew nut and casing the 2nd floor 40% + 20% off racks at this Fifth Avenue store is panning for gold.
Walk or run to check out these three stores.
