Take the Roosevelt Island tram for a unique view of the city and then walk along the southwest side promenade (of Roosevelt Island) down to the Roosevelt Memorial for a combined view of Manhattan, Queens & Brooklyn.

Look for "sample sales." This is where higher-end stores sell clothes at discounted prices, sometimes significantly so. Sometimes the clothes are truly "samples," meaning unique items the store is trying out and may never make again. My girlfriend absolutely loves the hell out of them...and hey, I've found the occasional well-fitting $30 cashmere sweater, too.

Early December was a huge time for them, and I think 2 weeks from now will be much slower. Check the websites below, and I'm sure new ones will appear later.
