New outfit? Check!
Shoes? Check! Jewelry? Check! Hosiery?... Let's face it, we're
always in need of some hosiery and, unfortunately, it doesn't
come cheaply. Well, not at most stores anyway. Steuer
Hosiery is different. Here, you can pick up three
pairs of pantyhose, tights, what-have-you for the price you'd

after all this splurging on "you", feelings of guilt

luxuries that Tiffany & Co.
has to offer. Whether you intend to buy, buy, buy or simply
to browse, browse, browse, browse -- this particular landmark
is a wonderful stop for breakfast or any other time of day.
Thoughts on New
Sometimes it seems as if all of New York City
is one enormous shopping center, with new stores opening
up and older ones closing down daily.
(Christiane Bird -- Moon Travel Handbooks)
New York City stands
alone as the shopping capital of the universe.
(Avante Guide, New York City)
Cash prices are usually
better on the lower East Side, so don't be afraid to do
a little bit of haggling here.

No matter how strange
or obscure the item, it seems to me that in New York there
is at least one shop that sells what you are looking for.
