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.

    I could not have thought of a more fitting title!! I happen to enjoy Italy and pizza and cannolis and mob movies!! It is all very fancy but I have no money to be going to Italy!! I went to this market today because I wanted to look at it!! It had a ton of stores but I didn’t buy anything!! It also had some interesting novelty pictures which I will add to my collection of weird things I’ve seen!! The stores had pastas and sauce and cannolis and pizza but there was no mobsters which was good for me!!

    This is the BEST PLACE to buy and look books!
    It is a “jungle of paper”. They have everything. If you want a book they have it in three different version (vary the price).
    Also, the book over here are really cheap! It is unbelievable. I swear!
    I love books and I could not believe that I BOUGHT a book for 7$.

    They have all the categories. Also they have best sellers and books for kids!

    In my opinion, this is the best bookstore I have ever been. No feelings, juts logic.

    Place: 5/5

    Amount of book: 5/5

    PRICES: 5/5

    Variety: 5/5

    Environment: 5/5

    Service: 5/5

    I could keep writing about this place but that would be unnecessary. Just go and check this review buy yourself.

    COMPLETELY WORTH IT.

    My first ever Tiffany visit 😍

    Classy looking store with well dressed friendly staff that don’t pressure you into buying anything.

    I did leave my husband outside sweating a little as I did purchase a Tiffany classic necklace which I only eat on special occasions.

    When I return I will be purchasing the matching earrings ♥️

    Grew up in NYC so I’ve been to FAO many times. Yesterday was a Bluey event and my 6 year old is a huge fan so I took him. After ww got our photos we went over to the candy section and the woman who helped us made the experience so much better. My son lost his dad this week so that was the main reason for our visit (a pick me up) and this angel made me cry. She even found a mta train he’s been searching. She hugged and comforted me. I will never forget. Thank You ❤️

    B&H is always the place to go for anything that has a battery or plugs into a receptacle. Friendly and knowledgeable staff that know their stuff, ( unlike a big chain electronics store )

    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.

    The store was big and spacious, the M&M's themselves were sweet but a bit overpriced. The elevator was a bit slow, but it works it is also a good place for pics.
    I would definitely recommend it.

    I've been to Economy Candy a number of times and if you're visiting NYC, make sure not to miss it. It's like stepping back into your childhood as you walk through that candy land. I had pre-ordered some candy which I was picking up today and decided to grab a few more items. As I turned around, I noticed that the line had grown incredibly long. Yamilex, who had just given me my order, noticed my dismay (I was on my way to tutoring and in a bit of a rush) and was able to ring me up on a portable device. Now that is what I call exemplary customer service! Thank you Yamilex - much appreciated! You rock! I highly recommend Economy Candy! I'll definitely be back!

    Visited here after many years. Great selection of deli items and iconic institution. Had some great coffee and a sweet treat in the cafe. Wandered the deli afterwards to get some take home salads and some branded gifts for people at home. Loved how well patronised the shop was by locals. Would recommend a visit if you like good coffee and yummy deli products. Was surprised at the amount of pork products and stupidly assumed the deli catered mainly to a Jewish palate.

    We have been going to American Girl for decades. We had such a great time. Our nieces took their dolls to get their hair done and then went to tea. The staff was great and the store was well laid out. We had not been since they moved the store and this one was a big improvement.

    Lego Store is a great free, family friendly activity to do while visiting the area of Times Square.

    I came here Presidents’ Day weekend with 3 kiddos ages 7-12. All had a blast, and loved building at the ground floor Lego building table. Even my youngest which hates Lego got into it. We spent 2 hours (atypical) here and I had to drag them out b/c they do not have a public bathroom.

    The store is relatively small and has two floors.
    As a result, the store controls occupant levels. There is typically a line to get in. We waited about 10-15 mins.

    If you are into Lego, The store has some fun and popular displays (marvel, DC, star wars etc).. The pricing is surprisingly not inflated, and typically closer to what you will see online.

    Pros: free, fun activity for kids of all ages who can tolerate Lego. Product pricing reasonable. Staff are very nice.

    Cons: Absent the small building tables on each floor, there isn’t much else to do other than look at displays and products. For those not enamored with Lego, this may be a 30 min activity tops. No bathroom. They recommend you go across the street, which for us was closed the day we attended. Have a bathroom option in your back pocket.

    Yes, this store stays full but that comes with the territory of its location. I loved finding merchandise here that I can’t find in Disney World, Disneyland, or at my local store. The staff were friendly, professional, and so happy to answer any of our questions or help us take a quick under the floating lanterns. Fun stop on Broadway

    The chocolate given to you when entering is a good surprise and yummy. Great range of products of chocolates and toys. Great if you don’t have Hershey’s where you live.

    Words can not describe how happy I am with what Kamni and my fiance were able to create. My engagement ring is even more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. She was able to take my ideas of what I liked and wanted and turn those into a stunning piece. I get so many compliments on how beautiful it is. If I could give her more than 5 stars I would. Thank you Kamni, you are truly so talented.
