Shopping in New York is not just for Carrie Bradshaw or Blair Waldorf. There's something for everyone, from elegant luxury shopping to affordable, unique places to find the perfect gift.

Although shops and shopping centers can be found almost anywhere in the city, SecretNYC have compiled a list of 20 places where you can spend your salary and not regret it.
