For a long time my girl wanted to visit this store. Finally during our NYC we took her here. She was crazy about everything. The staff is very nice and the place is just beautiful. It is worth the visit.

Stopped into the flagship Dylan’s while in NYC. Three level store, with a million different variety of candies, and many novelty gifts. Loved the “Grease” collection, and the Jewish collection of ornaments, candies, and other trinkets! The third floor has a cafe, which we didn’t...More

Our friends recommended Dylan's but the cafe was absolutely filthy and I am surprised that the health department hasn't closed this place down. My coffee was served in what appeared to be a used cup (moist food particles on the rim of the cup) and...More

This store was great to visit. It's location is not ideal for all tourists because of how far away it is from Time Square. The candy store on the lower and street level was impressive. The ice cream bar on top is amazing. There is...More
