November 26 is Black Friday, the most highly anticipated (and terrifying!) shopping day of the year. The sales and crowds can be overwhelming, so we’ve mapped out some of the city’s best deals to help you formulate a plan of attack. Whether you’ll be stopping by Convent to score deals on Rick Owens, fondling discounted cashmere sweaters at Hickey Freeman, or downing free green tea at Norma Kamali, be prepared to throw elbows. Or, for the less adventurous, just hibernate until Cyber Monday, when you can blow your paycheck from the safety of your couch.
