Welcome to Whale Week, our celebration of the city's biggest spenders.

Imagine for a second that you stumbled upon a giant pile of money. Where would you spend it? Fortunately for some New Yorkers, that's not a hypothetical question. For the rest of us, blowing a few grand in one afternoon at McQueen and Chanel is the stuff of dreams.
In the map below, we've rounded up fourteen stores you could literally spend an entire fortune at. We've left out the big-name department stores, and instead, decided to focus on those over-the-top, luxe designer flagships—most of which reside above East 60th Street.
