I had really high hopes for this shop, but it didn't meet my expectations. The selection for men is much better than the selection for women. It's a good place to shop if you're only interested in brands and not what the clothes actually look like. The prices were quite decent and despite the size of the store, I just... More

Pretty small but got probably something for everyone. Prices are most of the time 50% of the original and even less. Clean place, well organized. I would stop by for a bargain hunt.

Was very impressed by the layout and staff at this discount store. There were some great bargains to be found. But found that you did have to check the prices as there were still some very expensive designer items. Yes discounted but still very pricey. So just becareful. Overall some fantastic bargains are to be found.

I have been shopping at Century 21 since 1996 on my yearly trips to New York City. Be sure to visit the location in Lower Manhattan as it's the biggest and best C21 location! THIS IS THE PLACE FOR TRUE BARGAINS! FORGET THE OUTLET MALLS, A TRUE SHOPPING MECCA! Wether inexpensive t-shirts or designer gear this is the spot. Don't... More

This store has many items from beautiful, reasonably priced men's ties to a variety of handbags. It is sizeable and relatively clean. The only issue is finding someone to assist you when needed. Also, think about what you are purchasing before buying. Due the distance between locations, it can be a pain if a return or exchange is needed.

Century 21 is heaven if you like great quality items at great prices. There is a huge choice of labels, from high end to high street, and the prices are excellent. There is a coffee shop to take a break from shopping,and large changing rooms. The lifts don't go to all the floors so it was a bit of a... More

Century 21 is a multilevel department store, labels at bargain prices. I found a Ralph Lauren jacket for $ 29.95 normally $175.+ or something, it was last year' s. Upon paying the tag scanned $99.00 even thought the ticket was $29.99. The 2 cashiers said they would have to give it to me since it was the ticketed price and... More

Staying in TriBeCa

Neighborhood Profile
What’s in a name? In this case it is the unique title of “Triangle Below Canal Street” that became a popular nickname in the 1970s. An attractive neighborhood filled with handsome lofts on the edge of the Financial District, this lovely slice of Manhattan offers plenty of fine dining experiences and art galleries. Plus, it’s home to the city’s most exciting film event, the Tribeca Film Festival, that takes place here every year. TriBeCa is a great place to take a leisurely stroll before stopping into one of the many local restaurants or bars for a satisfying meal and cocktail. You’ll see families out for an afternoon walk, and don’t be surprised to come up with the occasional celebrity sighting. With such a great vibe, many of the city’s most famous residents call this neighborhood home.
