NYC Shopping Recommendations?

Anyone able to help this D.C.-bound girl on her honeymoon shopping in NYC?

Of course, I plan on hitting the Big Ones - Bergdorf Goodman, Barney's - but what else shouldn't I miss? We've got a week, refueling stops with Bobby & Mario already scheduled, and evening entertainment with Les and Arturo. We're bunking in Grammercy Park, smack dab in the middle of it all, but off the beaten path.

Do tell, do tell!

Ah, my favorite hobby: shopping in NYC!
My absolute favorites:
Scoop NYC (across from Prada on Broadway in Soho): Kind of like Intermix, but, their stuff just seems a bit prettier to me.
What Comes Around Goes Around (West Broadway): Fabulous vintage and vintage-y stuff with an incredibly nice and helpful sales staff.
Kirna Zabete (Greene Street between Prince and Spring): A beautiful, spacious boutique filled with fabulous designer things.
Barbara Bui (Wooster Street): I made my husband spend a CHUNK of our fifth anniversary combing through every Barbara Bui boutique in Paris on the hunt for one skirt (I was too embarassed that I didn't know enough French to ask them to call around for me, nor were they forthcoming). Anyway, they have fabulous sales, and her stuff is nothing short of breathtaking.
Verve (Columbus Ave)--'tis over in the village, but it's my favorite purse store. Whenever I'm asked "Where DID you get that bag?", it's almost always from Verve. It's small and packed with great bags from all over, most from designers you've never heard of (that are also surprisingly affordable in most cases).
