Everybody knows that New York City is a shopper's paradise. It's also one of the most expensive cities in the world (Manhattan's Fifth Avenue, home to Saks, FAO Schwarz, and Tiffany & Co., is consistently ranked among the world's most expensive streets, right up there with Bond Street in London and the Avenue des Champs-Elysees in Paris). But just because New York City is expensive doesn't mean you can't find great deals. Below you'll find a list of the best places to shop in New York City.

1. Macy's: Located in Manhattan's Herald Square, between 34th and 35th Streets, Macy's boasts a reputation as New York City's premier department store. It's also its largest. While children will enjoy ogling the amazing window displays, adults will enjoy saving money on their favorite designer brands.

2. Greenflea: Part farmers' market, part garage sale, Greenflea is one of New York City's best-kept secrets. Every Sunday from 10am to 6pm on Columbus Avenue, you'll have the chance to browse imports, crafts, antiques, vintage furniture, clothing, and fresh produce at indoor and outdoor vendors. With a selection this wide, you're bound to find something good.

3. Alice Underground: Hipsters, take notice. If you're looking to find inexpensive retro clothing, you won't want to miss Alice Underground, located on Broadway between Broom and Prince Streets. There you'll find everything from lace slips to rad suede jackets. Find more fun NYC thrift stores at our New York City Thrift Stores page!
