I have always loved Barneys. Love their stores in stores in Chicago and Las Vegas! Unfortunately, the store on Madison Avenue is not the same one that I remember. I don't know how to explain it, but there was nothing that I wanted. Perhaps they have new buyers, but big disappointment.

I went to Barney's in Scottsdale, same company as the NY store, to look for jewelry. My sales person was delightful and helpful. But my sales person was new so she lacked an understanding of their policies. Bought a pair of pierced earrings, which did not work out for me. I had verified that the return policy was 30 days,...

Many New York stores try a great deal to draw people in. The large stores do a great at that. Located at 60th and Madison, Barneys has done a wonderful job with the theme of Bedazzled. It was a theme of ideas put into a creative window setting. It ranged from the idea of Freedom, Truth, Beauty and Love. The... More

We walked the city; looking for Christmas displays. Barney's was one of the best that we saw. Very well done. The store is a pretty good walk from the Times Square area but well worth it.

I've just finished an early (pre-Thanksgiving) tour of many of the holiday windows in NYC. I would judge Barney's to be the best, and is a not to be missed. This year is called Baz Dazzled, and were created by Baz Luhrmann and Catherine Martin with original music by Pentatonix. The windows are themed Truth, Beauty, Freedom and Love. There... More

Barney's holiday windows are absolutely incredible!! There's movement, sound, a message, high-tech "artwork" and a real ice skater, all in the windows. This is not your traditional department store holiday window, it's like nothing you have ever seen before, but will probably see more of in the future as other stores try to match this FANTASTIC, free show. It's a... More

This is a great store that I can't afford anything in. I love the way the store is laid out. They have all the best designer brands and the sales staff is very friendly. Their beauty floor is only second to Berdorf Goodman and Saks. It is smartly laid out and carries all the expected brands as well as a... More

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighborhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighborhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
