Shopping soho noho I love shopping, I love everything about shopping, I love everything you probably hate about shopping and more. I’m not much of a ‘bargain hunter’ so it’s safe to say I had a coronary when I hit Soho and Noho (South Houston St and North Houston St). These are hands down the best places to shop in New York. Bloomingdales took 5 hours of my life I’ll never care to see again, along with a lot of my money. As did Mercer Street which contains Helmut Lang, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Rag & Bone and more. Spring St and Bleecker St are also killers. And the best part about it? It was ridiculously cheaper in New York than in Australia.Find out how the USA stacks up here.
