How to get a retail job in NYC?

I'm on Long Island so I really don't know how folks get retail/sales jobs in NYC.First of all..would I get discriminated because I'm on Long Island? Secondly,where can I start to look for jobs? I need a job immediately but I don't want to look for a job at big chain stores because there is lots of competition and lots of people quit/g******d off ,new people get hired constantly,work hours get cut sporadically and lots of work politics happen.I don't want to go through that. My ideal place to work is a boutique shop. Job boards are out of my consideration,Craigslist is a HUGE waste of time since every job ad gets 300 resumes!
