Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    No visit to New York is complete without shopping at Macys this is quite an establishment and an “old school” department store which I tend to get lost in and have difficulties finding the things I am looking for…..

    Saks Fifth Avenue is the flagship store for the Saks group. Located opposite the Rockefeller Centre and Saint Patricks it truly is a great location.

    It’s like a complete shopping mall for women in one store. Pocketbooks makeup and clothes. This is a very big store that you could get lost in. Every major brand is here.

    Located just off union Square this is an interesting and sizeable shop. The name doesn’t really do it justice as I was expecting something more of lower end.

    I've been to Barney's uptown many times, and I always find it a little uppity. I finally got to explore the one downtown this weekend. It was not only really cool, but I found the service chill and relaxed. I didn't feel uncomfortable while browsing. People were really nice. The clothes are really cutting-edge with lots of up and coming designers. It's more downtown and less suits. Pretty cool here. Love the accessories departments.They have a cool basement cosmetics department too. Check it out if you're in Chelsea or the Village

    This store is very large and has multiple stories. There is an escalator to bring you up and down, and the layout is kind of like a maze. It’s very hard to navigate and the signage doesn’t help much. The outside of the building is iconic, so hopefully H&M never goes out of business!

    BG is always fun to visit. Start at the top if you have never been there. You will be astounded by the home decor and accessories department. Look for the bunny plates and napkins and china. Fun! The staff in all departments is first rate and never stuffy. Just helpful and they love to chat when not too busy.

    Excellent store with some bargains though the exchange rate with euro is not favourable at present. Plenty to see and choose from.

    We stocked up on decorations, authentic silk attire and a dragon head for our Chinese New Year party. The store is filled with beautiful items.

    I like this salon! I came to the store after finding the salon on Instagram. I recommend it! Girls awesome and quality of hair really cool. I spend good time and have volume extensions, like my nature hair🥳

    We actually live in NYC and periodically go to Nordstrom's to shop. Most recently, we've been spending quite a bit of time at the store shopping for spring clothes. This store is not like any. other Nordstrom stores that I've been to in other cities or suburbs. This store is incredible. The selection of merchandise is huge and it's not all of the same designers that you see in every other store. They have a wide selection of brands that we were not as familiar with, ranging in styles for all ages.

    The staff is also quite helpful and so nice. They follow-up when you're in the dressing room, running to get other sizes or styles. We shopped on a number of floors for swimwear, lingerie, casual clothes, dress clothes and shoes and in every instance the sales staff were helpful and cheerful, in contrast to other department stores in the city.

    Our final stop was shoes which we got to shortly before the store was closing. They happened to be quiet busy because of the beautiful spring weather and someone approached us asking if we were going to try shoes on and they took our name and had a fabulous system in place where they called your name when a member of the sales staff was available. We happened to get matched with Mo, who was incredible. He was so nice, helpful, and so very knowledgeable about the shoes; how they fit, bringing us other styles to try. My daughter wanted a pair of walking/running sneakers and had picked out two of them, which were not really right for what she was looking for. Mo came back with five other styles and we ended up purchasing one of the pairs he suggested. The store had closed and he did not rush us out and actually went in the back to retrieve other shoes for us. We wound up purchasing four pairs of shoes because he was so helpful.

    If you have the time, it's worth going out of your way to shop at the NYC Nordstroms. And, if the weather is bleak, it's a great way to spend the day and eat at one of the many restaurants in the store. We will definitely go back next season for clothing.

    Awesome art gallery to explore different exhibits featuring artists specializing in clothing, accessories, skin products and other start ups. They feature a slide, coffee bar and they have interactive exhibits when you wave your want at particular stations. Highly recommend this gallery if you want to do some shopping, check out pop up shops and fill your IG feed with art. The pop ups and exhibit change so I'll definitely be back. Fun place to check out with some friends and no reservations required at this time

    Everything is under $5 dollars which is a great deal but surprisingly organized compared to other dollar stores.

    There are lots of hidden gems in the store for example we found a cushion bench today, of course $5 each, which might be sold for more than $10 on Amazon.

    Oh Man! As a limey I love Target. We don't have any branches of them in the UK so when I am in the USA I always make a special point of visiting Target to get something I would not be able to get in the UK.

    There are plenty of small Target stores dotted around Manhattan and I took advantage of them getting things to eat and drink as well as things to wear.

    I had to go to New Jersey to visit a larger store with a larger range.

    The staff who served me were all polite and helpful.
