This is a very small mall. When they first opened 2 decades ago they had a great selection of stores. Now it has a very limited amount of stores, Not the least bit inviting. It has a couple of places to eat and an entrance to the subway on the lower level. I wish that NY had a big mall... More

It is definitely not the department store or shopping experience that tourists expect in NYC. Small and limited choices are not inviting for a second look.

Nothing spectacular about this mall - I expected something on a larger scale. The day I went, there wasn’t very many people there; the biggest store is JC Penny with several smaller well known stores. A subway station is adjacent to it. Very close to Penn Station and Madison Square Garden; those are the pros - definitely a huge contrast... More

Considering that this is a smaller mall, it is very nice and has a couple of nice chic stores--- C Wonder is one of them. Wish they were in south Florida. The bottom floor has a great grocery section and food court. All is tastefully decorated in this mall.

This mall is very small and has nothing special. The only good store was the JCP. I would recommend to shop somwhere else.

This mall is located in the heart of Manhattan and as such it doesn't do what a mall is fully meant to do but that is largely due to its location. In my experiences, shopping at a mall is something that is meant to be done in a suburban setting where one can easily park. Shopping at a mall in... More

You can take the subway right into the Manhattan Mall building- because most of the shops don't open till 10am, have a coffee at Greely Square or a juice at Speedys(both right across the road), while you wait. J C Penneys has the dominating space- all of the bottom floor. There is also a Sephora within this J C Penney.... More

This mall does not have lots of stores, but is interesting because is well located and the stores are good ones. You have train and subway at the same block. Good option in NYC

I love going to this mall. It's actually the first thing I do when I get into the city because I usually park in New Jersey, take the blue line subway right over to 33rd street, and the station for 33rd street is in the basement of the mall !! It makes it very easy for any travelers to get... More
