There are several C21 outlets in NYC. People come from all around the world to do their discount shopping. You can find designer labels which might sell at $5,500 reduced to $2,000. I found a Men's jacket retailing at $250 reduced to $45. The rule of thumb is 75% discounted. They don't just sell clothes, they have shoes: home wares;... More

When visiting my daughter and SIL in NYC, a visit to Century 21 is always on the agenda. I was first introduced to C21 at their financial district location. I always describe this place to friends as TJ Maxx on steroids. Tons of clothes at discount prices. This location was often messy, with stuff tossed everywhere. Haven't been there for... More

If you go to New York, you need to shop here. You'll find the best brands at very good prices. Their display is not the best, and none of it shoes matched with the boxes they were in, but if you have some time, you can find some great deals.

Apart from Tommy Hilfiger polo shirts for 25 dollars didn't really see great deals for me. I was hoping to get a load of designer tshirts on good deals and I was disappointed.

I found their lingerie department to be one of the best... More

You can't beat the hidden gems - you've got to find then but when you do, the price is a great reward for your efforts!

My 3rd time here.....I can spend a whole day in here! We actually came out for lunch and went back in! Great bargains to be had, especially on jeans and Calvin Klein gear, which is much more expensive in the UK.

Shopped here a few times, they have wide variety to choose from, in the latest fashion, from good designers. Their selection of intimate clothes are great! Visit early to avoid, long queues.

Still a discount paradise ... but European brands are more expensive in the US and if you go there go rather for the American brands .. the place has gone thru an uplift over the last couple of years ... take your time as you need it ...

Staying in Financial District

Neighbourhood Profile
Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial District is where New York City began as a center of commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful setting are complemented by museums, countless skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District, home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange. Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis Island to learn about the vital immigrant history of the city.
