Ettinger’s signature designs feature vibrant gemstones encased in precious metals, creating unique pieces that accentuate the natural structure of the stones.

  • Price band: 2/4

This store marks the bargain chain’s third location (the others are in Soho and on the Upper West Side), hawking discounted women’s shoes ($15–$100), apparel ($4–$70) and accessories ($2–$15) overstocked from major department stores such as Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s. Although you’ll find great steals on ladies’ clothes from brands including Calvin Klein and Michael Kors for up to 80 percent off retail prices, the real draw is the constantly replenished footwear selection. We recently spotted Sam Edelman pony-hair wedges ($60), Nine West suede pumps ($27) and Badgley Mischka satin-and-rhinestone sandals ($77). Don’t miss the designer-bag collection ($100–$800), featuring marked-down satchels from See by Chloé, Balenciaga, Tory Burch and Coach, located behind the front counter. (646-657-0129).

One of the walls even slides away to uncover a dressing room. (646-590-0553, fognewyork.com). Mon–Sat 11am–7pm, Sun noon–6pm.
