From delightful boutiques to innovative pop-ups, there's no shortage of retail therapy in the heart of the Big Apple. New York City has long been described as the shopping mecca of the East Coast. Several hundred stores and boutiques peddle their wares throughout Manhattan, especially in sophisticated and bohemian TriBeCa, where everything from chic designer labels to vintage treasures awaits the discerning shopper.

TriBeCa is steeped in culture and history, and its eclectic retail scene is the result of decades of aesthetic experimentation. What was once an industrial center now comprises one of Manhattan’s hottest luxury neighborhoods. You can easily combine a shopping excursion with lunch at a posh cafe, a tour of the newest art gallery, or happy hour at a historic pub. With something new on every corner, it’s easy to see why celebrities and the well-to-do have flocked to TriBeCa.

Whether you already live in TriBeCa or are visiting to check out local real estate, all the neighborhood’s best shops beckon. Read on to discover the latest gems courtesy of expert real estate advisor Carolina Bravo.

Standalone shops of TriBeCa

Known for its trendy boutiques, TriBeCa is an excellent place to shop for high-end fashion, unique home goods, and one-of-a-kind gifts. The following list of stores samples the neighborhood’s many retail offerings.

180 The Store

180 Duane St.

At 180 The Store, shopping is an intimate and personalized experience. The boutique is known for high-end fashion and top designer labels. Its discerning selection of artisanal pieces includes jewelry, clothing, home decor, and beauty products. Each item in the store is handpicked for its exceptional craftsmanship and distinctive design. With an ever-changing roster of independent designers, you will likely find a one-of-a-kind piece that aligns with your aesthetic.

Jenni Kayne

20 Harrison St.

Initially a Southern Californian lifestyle brand, Jenni Kayne opened its first New York City store in 2017 after a successful pop-up shop in the Hamptons a year prior. The brand carries chic shirts, flats, and sweaters. Its cotton fisherman sweater gets rave reviews and is a versatile wardrobe piece equally suitable as a winter layer and summer staple. If you like the store’s bleached wood and stone floor aesthetic, you’ll also want to check out their home goods items.

La Garconne

465 Greenwich St.

La Garçonne, an online store for androgynous women's fashion, recently opened its first brick-and-mortar location in TriBeCa. The spacious and cutting-edge store carries its most popular items and a wide selection of high-end brands, including Jacquemus, Acne, and Marni. It also stocks its in-house brand, La Garçonne Moderne. In addition to clothing, the store also sells home objects. The location is family-friendly and attracts a broader range of customers than the online store.

Nili Lotan

188 Duane St.

Yet another Duane Street special, Nili Lotan is a hybrid store and studio decades in the making. Its eponymous founder moved to the city in 1980 from Israel with two years of military service and a fashion degree in hand. Nili launched her brand in 2003; her tanks, camisoles, and skirts often achieve a faded look, while details like the dog-tag labels recall Nili’s experience in the Israeli Air Force. Don’t be surprised if you see Nili Lotan’s sterling silver keychains out on the town.


177 Franklin St.

Based in Detroit, Shinola TriBeCa is an architecturally beautiful building that houses a loft-style interior flooded with natural light. Its wall space is shared by designer handbags and bicycles, while Shinola’s mesmerizing watches take center stage. The store combines 1930s industrialism with a minimalist sensibility befitting TriBeCa. Its central location between Greenwich and Hudson makes it the perfect spot for a spontaneous pop-in.

Shopping districts near TriBeCa

TriBeCa’s charming cobblestone streets are the perfect setting for a retail adventure. Sometimes, though, the occasion calls for a mall-like experience. The following four retail centers are less than a mile’s walk from TriBeCa.

Canal Street

265 Canal St.

Canal Street marks the northern boundary of TriBeCa. Follow the road east from the Broadway intersection, and you’ll find a wonderful district dotted with one-of-a-kind shops. The Canal Street Market is one of the city’s best districts to hunt for bargains. It’s a fast-paced atmosphere filled with pedestrians walking to and from Chinatown, Little Italy, SoHo, and TriBeCa.
