Gear Outlets in NYC

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
We're in NYC from 6 Jan. Any ideas on good stores to buy jackets (and maybe ski boots if better value than Denver or Breck). Also going to LA but been told better to wait to NYC to buy gear?
Thanks for any help

panda sports in brooklyn or emilio ski in queens.


thens there is paragon, scandinavian and princeton in NYC but thyre a bite pricey. If youre looking for stuff like TNF, then youre better of going to any store on Canal street.

Wondering about the chances of getting some superseded boots for my 15yo (growing boy). In a search came up with Als but its in Maine, and mail order and thus a complication. Any other thoughts for a drop in store for superceded or sale boots (much more interested in value than fashion) woudl be much appreciated - NYC or Denver/Summit County.
BTW 45degress celsius (about 112 F) in Sydney today - hottest day just about ever, and the fires are raging.

If you want a laugh, stop in the Manhattan Ralph Lauren, Madison Avenue around 77th. We were walking from museum to museum yesterday, looked in the ski-theme window, and had to stop in. My favorite item was the leather-covered ski helmet, followed by the old-style divided-glass motorcycle goggles, like Marlon Brando's in Wild Ones. And some lovely, soft gray flannel ski pants with leather edge guards. $1,000 sweaters, of course.

NYC is a CITY PERSON's shopping place, fooltotry. you're not going to have much luck at all finding outdoor activity oriented shopping there. it's just not practical for any store to carry such stuff in any depth. hence the ridiculous prices at Princeton Sports, etc.

the broader shopping opportunities are across the Hudson in New Jersey.
