  3. Neiman Marcus

    Perhaps the highest of the high-end stores, this one overlooks Union Square from a plum spot once occupied by the City of Paris building, constructed in the 1890s but torn down to build this modern structure. Part of the original remains, however, by way of the huge stained-glass dome. Neiman’s boast is that it can get anything you might want – private jets, elephants, you name it.

  4. Saks Fifth Avenue

    For decades, the name has been synonymous with high style and this branch of the New York mainstay is one of the best embodiments of the store’s mythic elan. You’ll find just about every international designer of note here.

US and European designer stores vie for attention with local shops, cafés, and restaurants.
