New York City's Emerging Retail Hot Spots

Posted: May. 15th, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

Faster than ever, new retail hot spots are popping up all over New York City to fill niche markets (that really aren't that niche, but hey) and provide shoppers with a different shopping experience depending on where they want to get their fashion and goods.

In parts one and two of this report, we saw how fast a major luxury retail zone like the Meatpacking District can rise and be recast and examined the enduring importance of Soho. But alongside luxury stalwarts like Soho — a shopping district rivalled only by Madison Avenue, newly relevant thanks to a set of younger brands that have opened in the neighbourhood — a number of new clusters of luxury retail activity have emerged in recent years.

In 2008, for instance, the opening of the Rogan store on the Bowery heralded the rise of a new cluster for trendy restaurants and fashion stores in a formerly grey zone north of Houston Street, anchored by the Bowery Hotel.
