Urban Outfitter's - West Village

Neighborhood: West Village

Type of Place: Women's Clothing

A temple of underground minimalist cool and style for young citydwellers, Urban Outfitters is often the first place college students go to decorate their dorm rooms. Itís full of retro-chic pieces (shag rugs, anyone?), the slightly profane (light-up Jesus statues), and things that you just canít live without, like hanging beaded curtains and exotic-looking rugs and bedspreads and rugs. Thereís also fashion galore in both the menís and womenís clothing section, and the stores have an ever-evolving line of sarcastic, up-to-the-moment t-shirts that can quickly become cult favorites when celebrities start wearing them.
