World Class Shopping in Fidi
July 24, 2018
When most people picture Manhattan’s Financial District, they think of skyscrapers and business suits. While it’s true that the lower half of the island is where most of the cash flow takes place, it isn’t all just business. Believe it or not FiDi is as much a vibrant cultural hub as any other neighborhood in the city.
Outside of business dealing and penthouses, there’s a very down to Earth aspect going behind the scenes. Fine dining locations spot the corners of streets, arts and entertainment are everywhere, and premier shopping outlets are in abundance. That’s right, FiDi is a hub of world class shopping outlets and retailers.
If you live in the area’s NYC apartments, you’re just moments away from indulging yourself in a shopping spree. From an entire new wardrobe to accessories and home furnishings, these locations have you covered.
Much like the city itself, Brookfield takes on several forms at once. You’ll find fine art, fitness, and the perfect Sunday getaway all wrapped into one here, not to mention premier shopping. With major names like Gucci, Davidoff, and J Crew, you could spend all day within Brookfield Place’s glass walls.
Looking for some hot accessories to match a new outfit? How about the finest beauty products New York has to offer? Maybe fine jeweler is more your style? Whatever it is you’re looking for, Brookfield Palace has it in surplus.

There are numerous spots to stop and refuel during your shopping spree, too, such as the beloved Blue Bottle Coffee and Neuhaus Belgian Chocolate. Shop at major name retailers like Sephora, Aesop, and Fossil before pampering yourself at XpresSpa. Afterwards, grab a cappuccino from Starbucks as you make your way to Philosophy, L’Occitane and so much more.
Since this is a tourist spot, it is highly recommended that you plan your shopping extravaganza in advance. You can easily make an entire day out of this one location, so you might want to plan out which stores you want to see the most as well. Just remember, it’s going to be busy no matter what day of the week you go.
