Century 21

Top choice fashion & accessories

in Financial District & Lower Manhattan

For penny-pinching fashionistas, this giant cut-price department store is dangerously addictive. It's physically dangerous as well, considering the elbows you might have to throw to ward off the competition beelining for the same rack. Not everything is a knockout or a bargain, but persistence pays off. You'll also find bespoke tailoring, accessories, shoes, cosmetics, homewares and toys.

This Financial District location is the mothership; there are six other stores across Manhattan and the boroughs, and others in New Jersey, Long Island, Philadelphia and Florida.
