There's never been a better time to live and shop in Tribeca. A host of luxury labels, from Burberry to Gucci to Salvatore Ferragamo, have recently made the new Brookfield Place shopping center home. Saks Fifth Avenue, the nearly century-old department store chain, is even setting up shop in Brookfield. The neighborhood is also sprinkled with plenty of smaller, high-end boutiques for men, women, and children that are definitely worth seeking out. Nicole Phelps, director of Vogue Runway (who works out of Condé Nast's headquarters in the area at One World Trade Center), shares her five favorite shops in the neighborhood.
"From cargo jackets to cozy ribbed sweaters, nobody does a better basic than Nili Lotan. I like the laid-back vibe of her space, too."

“I design for the downtown, sophisticated woman with a laid- back attitude, and the neighborhood seemed the perfect fit. ”

“There is always inspiration from nature and pulling from natural elements and this sense of open space and sky and wind. It's an ethos of the brand.”
"I've been shopping at Steven Alan since his first store opened on Wooster Street in Soho in the '90s. The Tribeca space is big and airy and well stocked. When I need a present, I like to swing by here first."

"I know La Garçonne mostly as a website—I like its mix of labels like Zero + Maria Cornejo, Lemaire, and Acne Studios. The store is like the e-commerce site come to life, a great place to find low-key work clothes."
