Flagship of a small chain of department stores, this is New York’s overlooked emporium. So when you come here, you won’t be battling the crowds as you will at Bloomingdale’s and Macy’s. Still, you experience the best of those two stores: Bloomingdale’s sense of high style at Macy’s discounted rates (thanks to rolling discounts; check the Internet for coupons). A number of magazine stylists I know head here when they have to populate a fashion shoot on a budget.
