One of fashion's finest, New York City boasts a shopping paradise for every budget and taste. Century 21, the mother of all discount department stores, lures shoppers to lower Manhattan, as does the South Street Seaport, an open-air, cobbled charmer featuring such stalwarts as Gap and Coach. Nearby, Pier 17 is one of the island's biggest indoor malls. Chinatown offers fascinating window shopping and all things exotic. SoHo is the place to go for original art, while the East Village exemplifies hip Bohemia. Shop under a neon glow in Times Square, or hit Fifth Avenue for elite pleasures like Tiffany and Henri Bendel.
