The James New York is ideally situated in the heart of the Soho neighborhood. Surrounding the hotel is an abundant selection of specialty shops and stores that offer a carefully-curated selection of goods. Take a stroll through Soho and check out our short list of top shops.

Blue in Green, 8 Greene Street
You know a store must be special when it’s a buzzer-only entry. This menswear shop features hard to find raw denim styles including 15 different designers from Japan. More than just a place to get your denim fix, Blue in Green also offers accessories, footwear and denim for women. If you’re in the right place at the right time, the sales offer discounted denim with some styles under $100.

Housing Works Bookstore Café, 126 Crosby Street
Though it may seem like an obvious spot, this institution offers one of the best selections of music, books and movies in New York. All of the merchandise is donated so you can be sure to find something special.  Even better? All purchases from the Bookstore or Café support Housing Works, a healing community of people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS.

Sweet William, 85 Kenmare Street
This children’s boutique also has locations in Los Angeles and Williamsburg and is known for all of its products being made from predominantly organic materials. Sweet William carries clothing for boys and girls as well as gifts, toys and art.  Decking out a children’s room has never been more fun or environmentally-friendly.

Uniqlo, 546 Broadway
Basic is not so basic when it comes to shopping. Uniqlo offers the best basics for men and women, no matter the season. With the cold weather quickly approaching, now’s the time to stock up on sweaters, henleys and some warm pajama pants.
