Black Friday in New York is incredible. People line up for stores to open and prices to plummet. While this happens across the country, the Big Apple does it bigger. Areas like Times Square, which are beautifully decorated for the holidays, are filled with people trying to get all their holiday shopping done. New Yorkers know where to get the best deals on the biggest shopping day of the year; why shouldn’t you? In order to level the playing field, we’ve come up with a list of 3 places for your Black Friday needs when you come to NYC.
