For Macy’s, Best Buy, Target, Aeropostale, Victoria’s Secret and other national brands, head to the Brooklyn malls. All offer a good selection of mid-priced stores and discount chains stores, too.
New York is a walking town; everyone wears sneakers. Shoppers will find trendy sneaker shops aplenty at all malls, with urban trendsetting sneakers showing up early at Fulton Mall. For hipster sneakers, head to Williamsburg.
IKEA in the waterfront neighbohood of Red Hook is a huge attraction, and can be reached by bus, car, or ferry from Manhattan.
