Katie Shea Design Has created a NYC Shopping Destination “Place Pins” Pinboard to help facilitate the smooth management of time while planning out a holiday shopping excursion in NYC.
The shopping destinations and descriptions were sourced from New York Magazine’s post on the Top 25 New York Shopping Destinations.
This “Place Pins” Board gives the shopper an overview of the possibilities available while also becoming aware immediately of the amount of time a particular area of the city can take to be shopped. The Pinboard’s overview feature also helps tremendously planning your means of transportation whether utilizing subway, bus , cab or by foot.
I am excited about all the time saving possibilities this feature has to offer me and my lifestyle!
