If you are visiting Century 21 for the first time make sure you have enough time to look around. The layout is a little tricky especially if you are looking at shoes. Expect to have to queue for the change rooms if it is a busy day. We have been there on 3 separate visits to New York and it... More

Love the Contemporary Collections and Brands. Fitting room attendant can be abrasive. Much cleaner and organized from years before.

Century 21 has a great collection of clothing at big discounts. Much of the clothing is designer and usually comes in all sizes including XXLarge -- everything front suits and coats to underwear and tee shirts. There are several locations, but the Cortland Street is the best and it's close to the 9/11 Memorial -- a plus for tourists.

Discounted prices abound but it's a bit chaotic and poorly organized. If you can tolerate the hunt, bargains can be had.

The happiest place for bargain shopping. Although you can get deep discounts here, the store layout is organized and well lit. Nice prices and nice merchandise.

Extremely crowded with tourists but you can find brand clothing at deaply discounted prices. Another store is in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn and one more is opening soon on Fulton mall. Brooklyn

This store is very popular with overseas tourists, and for good reason -- lots of discounted items with fancy name brands. Personally I preferred Century 21 in the old days, when it was far less glamorous and had a lot more different items to choose from, but it is still good and almost never disappointing. I buys towels here and... More

The prices are amazing and the service is non-existent. Never sure what you will find-- from regular to super luxury brands. I have friends who when visiting from Europe buy their costly gorgeous underwear here-- insisting it is far less than Paris prices.

They've got a huge selection and you have to dig to find cool stuff. Depends on what you're looking for. Way cheaper than Bloomingdales or Macy's. It's a great way to kill an hour or so and you might even find that cool button up shirt you're looking for.

The original location in the Fin-District is WAY better than the one uptown. The one uptown has terrible prices and is a hot mess to shop. This location has better prices although a little insane too.
