You do have to have a good look around and sometimes they have lots of great stuff and other times it might get not have anything you fancy but it's always worth a look as the prices are great

Do you enjoy: - Getting run over by massive wheeled baskets - Seeing toenails in the dressing rooms - Sifting through clothes on the floor - Watching snooty tourists fight over handbags - Babysitting other people's children - Looking for answers from multiple employees - Finding $10-$50 dresses and $1,000-$5,000 dresses, but little in between - Watching 10 cashiers chat...

Great shopping at good prices, especially on Black Friday weekend. It caters for all and is a large department store. It's was crowded (we expected it). Could be laid out better.

Shopping in nyc can be inexpensive if you know where to look. Century 21 caters for the expensive taste without the price tags. Yes, you will have to sift through everything but once you find the one you want well...the price is right. We needed another large luggage to take home with us because we bought so much stuff in...

We visited NYC for a week and went out shopping almost all multi brands store. Great collection and deals at C21. Compared to all C21 , I would recommend courtland outlet since it's huge and very friendly staff. Go out shopping

Me and my fiancé came to New York to do some shopping for Christmas. On our second day here he took the bus from port authority to Jersey Gardens. In my opinion this place was a let down, yeah there were good shops but to be honest they didn't actually have much good stuff!! After shopping around the city we... More

Needless to say, my wife went crazy at this humongous multi-story department store just next to WTC. You will find lots and lots of options, and some great bargains. The support staff seemed to be somewhat overwhelmed, but this is expected due to the incredible number of shoppers at any given time. We intended to spend just about one hour... More

On a recent trip to New York we visited Centrury 21 . We went to the one near the 911 museum . The store has lots of merchandise which can be overwhelming ! The store is well organized and clean but the line up to try on things is long! I didn't buy anything as the clothing was merchandised for... More

With baby carriage it was little bit difficult to find a accessible route to different floors, especially to shoe floors. Lots of people due to special prices and huge discounts. It is possible to find good bargains but not in every size. Luck is needed. No good selection of Nike sneakers. The interior is little bit stuffy and old 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.
