NYC - Century 21 Dept Store vs. Costco for Cookware - I'm looking to buy cookware!

Hi, I live in NYC and I'm about to buy some cookware but would like some recommendations as what to buy to help me start my cookware collection.

Unfortunately they don't carry cast iron skillets so I will have to look elsewhere for that. I'm thinking about getting a 12" Lodge and the square ribbed grill for meats at J&R.

I'm looking for a cooking set also. At century 21 they have the best prices and they carry Emeril, Le Creuset, Calphalon, (not sure if they have All-Clad), Lagostina, and the other popular varieties. I think the sets are anywhere from $70 to $200 at max (I think). Someone also posted that Costco has a nice All-Clad like set for $199 - It's a 16-piece set that got nice reviews http://bit.ly/xj8Um. My budget is probably up to $250 for my first cookware set.

I'm also looking for a dutch oven or something I can cook stuffed cabbage in the oven in. I'm thinking Le Crueset for this. Any thoughts?

This post is mainly for people that know Century 21 or live in NYC and know of a good place to purchase my first set of cookware without spending Williams Sonoma prices!

I'm new to NYC and am always looking for those favorite places to get good equipment at reasonable prices!

Thanks in advance!
