Directly across from the World Trade Center site, Century 21 is the most famous discount department store in the City.

The store features tons of designer brands marked down to up to 75% off, although a lot of the merchandise seems to have been exclusively produced for outlet selling or is only available in sizes XL or XXL. Still, stock is replenished daily so it’s always worth a rummage, just try and get there early before the tour buses unload.

Expect long lines for the dressing rooms and a sales staff that would rather be working somewhere else; it’s kind of like saving someone from a burning building. Get in. Shop. Get out. But at least you got that too-big Michael Kors leather bomber jacket at a discount.
