  • Filene’s Basement

    2222 Broadway, nr. 79th St.; 212-873-8000

    Filene’s Basement in general is a good source of deals, and the Upper West Side location is particularly ripe. It’s smaller and less hectic than the tourist-magnet Union Square store and often dense with strollers, but the selection is not as picked over, and big-name labels (Proenza Schouler, Marc Jacobs, Dries Van Noten) can be found regularly. Seen recently: a Dolce & Gabbana jacket for $299 and a 3.1 Phillip Lim dress for $119.

Where can you find the city’s top dog groomer? Last-minute tailor? Beef tongue? We eat, drink, dance, shop, shvitz, and trampoline our way around the city, not to mention poll scores of in-the-know colleagues, hard-partying friends, opinionated family members, and, this year, a team of guest expert bloggers to bring you answers to all of the above questions, and hundreds more, in the form of our annual “Best of New York” issue.
