About the SoHo and NoLIta Chic Boutique Shopping Tour
The side-by-side neighborhoods of SoHo and NoLIta are New York’s shopping epicenter, where people from all over the world flock to find the latest fashions and check out the style-setters who prowl the sidewalks. There are so many choices here that the experience can be a bit overwhelming for the uninitiated, which is where Shop Gotham can help.
An expert guide will get you beyond the big-brand stores you might find at your local mall and take you on a walking tour of independent clothing and accessory boutiques, the hidden gems on the scenic cobbled side streets of SoHo and NoLIta.
Your guide will not only escort you to some of the best places to find trendy luxury items and chic bargains – you’ll also be hearing interesting facts about the architecture, history and celebrity homes that surround you as you weave your way through the streets.
You’ll get tips on the latest fashion trends and your guide will be happy to help with wardrobe styling, and a limit of 12 guests on each tour means that you’ll get plenty of personal attention. The tour includes exclusive Shop Gotham discounts that you can use all day long. You might even get to stop in at one of the area’s legendary sample sales.
Approximately two-and-a-half hours.

Did you know?
The SoHo neighborhood (that’s South of Houston Street) contains the extensive SoHo-Cast Iron Historic District, which protects the area’s distinctive architecture. SoHo has been through many incarnations in the last 150 years: entertainment district, manufacturing hub, residential area for artists, and the shopping mecca of today.
NoLIta is a relatively recent coinage that stands for “North of Little Italy.” These streets were once home to generations of Italian Americans, and traces of their influence remain.
