Had changed a bit since my last trip in April - store had been revamped and perhaps less items than previously But still best store for buying gifts that you an't find anywhere - always something different in watches, jewellry, anything to do with design that would enhance your home.

I love this store! Many items are unique and artistically designed. Some are very expensive - but some are affordable. I especially like their jewelry and watches. Also, you can enjoy just looking at their cool merchandize and get ideas for yourself.

Exquisitely simple little earrings, cubes of sterling silver for $35. Perfectly modern souvenir of our visit to MoMA. Most items in the shop were quite pricey, of course.

The store is full of nice, cool stuff. It is a little expensive, specially for stuff you find everywhere, but they have some special items, exclusive for this store.

This is one of the best Museum stores I've ever been in if not the best. There are so many unique items and it's very interactive. If you're walking by or finishing up at the museum, take 30 minutes out of your day for some serious browsing.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
