Just west of Union Square, there's lots to see on this bustling street in Chelsea, from a hidden gem of a vintage shop to a surprisingly approachable lingerie store.
3 East 17th Street
Journelle is one of the city's most popular lingerie stores for very good reason: The service is friendly, the wares are lovely and affordable and everything's organized in an approachable way — from special occasion to best sellers.
13 West 17th Street, 2nd floor
One of the area's best-kept secrets, Shareen boasts an impressive array of well-priced vintage, especially when it comes to dresses, where the average price hovers around $100.
Pippin Vintage Jewelry
112 West 17th Street
Whether you're on the hunt for flashy costume pieces or subtle retro-inspired touches, Pippin stocks myriad options at surprisingly affordable price points.
Housing Works Thrift Shop
143 West 17th Street
Even better than the discounted housewares and clothing at this well-stocked shop is the store's mission: To provide benefits and services for New Yorkers living with HIV and AIDS.
110 West 17th Street
The city's floral district is scattered over several streets in Chelsea, and this shop offers an abundance of eye-catching arrangements and plants.
Angel Street Thrift Shop
118 West 17th Street Street
Much like Housing Works, the mission of this shop is a charitable one: to provide support for programs for those affected by substance abuse, HIV/AIDS and mental illness.
