Cool. Have a great time. Take a stroll through Central Park and on the Highline while you're there. The highline is an amazing way to experience the city.

In New York City, Century 21 claims to sell designer clothing at 65% off retail prices. They have a store at 22 Cortlandt Street between Broadway and Church Street which would be the closest of their three locations to where you are staying.
Shop Men's Clothing & Accessories | Century 21 Department Store | Century 21 Department Store

As JKGourmet noted, consignment stores are another way to go. Many very wealthy New Yorkers consign clothing they have worn only a few times.

$600 won't go that far at full retail prices.

They had one in Paris - pretty awesome. It wasn't crowded at all, either.

You just have to shop around each store - it is also sale time. I don't think i'll bother shopping in NYC, just tour around.

Oh btw Macy's give 10% off.
If you're such an expert, then why did you ask?

Just because it's on the website does not mean it'll be in stores. In high price areas the stores tailor their inventory to reflect the demographic which in NYC and DC is higher end. Expect to find the most expensive online in the doors. Not so much the other way around.

You're honestly much better off going to an outlet mall or stores like T.J.Maxx. Same brands much, much better prices.

Ahem, Tysons Corner is not DC, it's Virginia - a different state altogether. Just wanted to point that out.

Shopping is definitely better in VA as it's cheaper and you pay less sales tax.

If you'll be near the World Trade Center and have time to shop, check out Century 21.

Yes Tyson's does look good, I just wasn't sure if NYC would be cheaper to shop. I always hear of the shopping there.

Also should we take the subway from jfk into nyc for our first trip or pay $60 for the car?


If you are alone or just with another person, the best way from the NYC area airports into Manhattan is to take an airport shuttle. It is about $15 per person, and stops just south of Grand Central terminal, on the east side of the viaduct. You can then take a taxi or the subway to your hotel.

I hope you are going to DC to sightsee because if you are just going to shop, you may as well just shop in NYC because everything imaginable is there. Also, while you are in NYC, you should check out the outlet malls.


The link below is for the Woodbury Commons Premium Outlets, one of the largest outlet malls anywhere. There is regular bus service from Manhattan. Ask your hotel concierge.

The link below is for the Secaucus Outlets in Secaucus, NJ, which also has bus service from Manhattan.
