3 of the Most Unique Shops Around 40 East End

Shopping, while enjoyable, can sometimes feel monotonous. All too often, we see the same types of stores offering the same types of products. In New York City, however, there are tons of unassuming locations where you can find unique purchases. Our East Side condos are in the heart of Manhattan, putting you in the perfect location to explore these amazing shops.


Claire Distenfeld and her father Fred opened Fivestory in an effort to share Claire’s passion of the special – pieces that are modern, classic, and everything in between. From designers you know and love to specially curated collections exclusive to this store, Fivestory presents an offering of apparel and accessories unlike any other. Clothing, shoes, and jewelry are a few categories you can find here, from designers like Alexander Wang and Bande Noir. Visit Fivestory, just a short trip from our luxury New York condos, for the perfect blend of timeless and unique.

Spring Flowers

Our Upper East Side condos are just a short journey from Spring Flowers, a children’s clothing and accessories shop that has been operating since 1983. Founded by Maria Flieger, the store takes inspiration from Flieger’s European roots, where in her youth, children were often more dressed up in her homeland than they were in America. Today, you can find clothing for infants through age 16. You can put together a wardrobe for a child or secure them a special outfit for an event.

Our East Side condos put you right in the heart of the action and make it easy for you to find anything you may be looking for, from clothing to toys to books and so much more. These three shops are just a sampling of the incredible shopping experiences you can have in the area.
