In years past, if Bergdorf Goodman was the glamorous older sibling and Barneys the avant-garde individualist, the original Henri Bendel was the fun, fashion-forward little sister of New York City department stores. This was the first U.S. store to stock Chanel and championed offbeat yet fabulous fashion brands like Sonia Rykiel and Matthew Williamson, after all. But in 2009, the parent company shut down the clothes department in order to concentrate solely on accessories and beauty products. While the loss was felt keenly by fashion followers, there's still glamour to be found in the flagship store, which is made up of three late-19th-century town houses with the original Lalique windows and glass-domed ceiling intact. The beauty department stocks brands such as Trish McEvoy, Laura Mercier, and YSL, and you'll find jewelry and bags from Rebecca Minkoff, Tom Binns, and Miriam Haskell spread around the shop. There are more affordable options, as well, including snakeskin wristlets for under $100.—Emma Sloley

Open Mondays through Saturdays 10 am to 8 pm, Sundays noon to 7 pm.
