Holiday shopping in the retail Mecca of Manhattan is daunting enough. If you’re braving shopping in any of the boroughs this Black Friday, the least we can do is point you in the right direction.

Where: Target (517 E. 117th St, 212-835-0860)

When: Doors open at 8 p.m. on Nov. 28

Deals: If the Target Lady Black Friday commercials from years past aren’t reason enough to venture to the Harlem, Bronx or Brooklyn locations, maybe $119 Beats by Dre Solo HD Headphones are worth the trip.
