To buy clothes in New-York is a very good deal. First, it is quite cheap, especially because the tax rate in this state is low. Second, there is a large choice of different styles.
In New-York there are several Gothic clothes stores and each has its particularities. One advantage is that they are all located in the same area, just near Union Square. Thus you can quickly and easily tour them. Furthermore this area is very well served (underground lines: N, Q, R, L, 4, 5, 6).
Here below you will find a list and a description of the 3 major Gothic Stores of New-York.
Gothic Renaissance is a large store in which you will find a wide choice of clothes, accessories, shoes, lingerie, for men and women. They often have the newest collections of major Gothic brands such as Lip Service.
One weakness of the Gothic Renaissance store is their price. Indeed, accessories are affordable but clothes are a bit expensive. Their special offers can be a very good deal. Furthermore, the store is a pleasure for the eyes and is worth the detour.
