City: New York
Address: 91 Greene St.

Fun fact: Kid Cudi used to work at this store before he hit it big. And after he caught fame? His collaborative T-shirts with BAPE had streetwear and music fans alike lined up around SoHo's blocks. There were rumors of A Bathing Ape's New York location closing last year, but the Japanese streetwear brand is still going strong, pushing apparel that had a long impact on the fusion of rap and fashion.
