Living in one of the Lower East Side condos at One Manhattan Square means waking up each morning on a rare slice of NYC waterfront property nestled in one of the city’s densest shopping and dining areas. A short walk away from One Manhattan Square’s verdant garden takes residents into a world-class shopping area, putting them in contact with international fashion and design. Here are a few of the hippest boutiques that residents should visit this holiday season to check off the gifts on their seasonal shopping list (or pick up some stylish items for themselves).
When it comes to touring Lower East Side boutiques, the first stop has to be Assembly New York, the stylish shop that combines designer fashion with tasteful vintage and house-brand items to create a comprehensive experience. The unisex shop features one-of-a-kind items from local ceramicists, eyeglasses manufacturers, and perfumers, alongside iconic clothing and footwear, all housed inside their chic space on Ludlow Street.
For a more focused boutique experience, residents should head to 7115 by Szeki, the storefront location for the brand started by Hong Kong-born pop singer turned designer Szeki Chan. Inspired by her seamstress mother, Szeki has created an entire line of womenswear from natural fabrics with a neutral palette designed to empower creative and professional women who love to create their own outfits. Her minimalist aesthetic produces a line of stylish, sleek clothes, including iconic coats that use simple silhouettes to tie a look together, while the boutique itself features the same commitment to simplicity and style.
Billed as a “cinematic retail experience,” Extra Butter combines the classic boutique model with the trendy “drop” model to create an expansive approach to shopping for the latest sneakers, apparel, and accessories. From iconic brands like Nike, Timberland, and Vans to niche offerings from shoemaker Rhude and outerwear-maker Stone Island Shadow Project, Extra Butter is the best place to find the hippest threads in the chillest shopping environment around.
These stylish shops are just a short walk from the luxury condos at One Manhattan Square, which bring their own chic aesthetic to the Lower East Side. With custom kitchens, hardwood flooring, and, of course, cinematic views through floor-to-ceiling windows, these homes represent the refined elegance that defines contemporary Manhattan living. This aesthetic extends to the building’s suite of luxury amenities, including an entire fitness floor and an acre of private gardens surrounding the tower.
