Dreamland for doll lovers and little girls who are fans of American Girl dolls. We spent over two hours browsing this store. I wouldn't go without some sort of coupon -- certainly not a budget-friendly zone. We found the shop to be well-organized and a lot of fun. Just have a good idea of your budget and maybe visit the...

The holy grail for little girls. The first time I was there, the now 14 year old was 3, and I went with my cousin and my then 80 something year old aunt, I don't know who had more fun. It is the best place for little girls. Surprisingly to me, the restaurant has really good food, and the prices... More

Why would an Australian couple with no children visit the American Girl shop on Park Avenue in New York? Because it is a mega-professional shopping experience unlike anything else, and although we stumbled upon the shop in Los Angeles a year ago, we made it a point to visit New York (stores everywhere, though). American Girl is a doll/child phenomena... More

If your little one is interested in American Girl dolls...this is the place to come. It is beautiful and spacious...that being said...try to come during a weekday and not on any holidays. If you get there early in the a.m. on a weekday you will feel like you have the place to yourself. On the weekends it gets crowded and... More

Our Denver store is small so it was nice to see a much larger place and more displays and buying options. My only complaint was I really felt like staff wasn't helpful. It took forever to get help and when he helped he just simply pointed in the direction I Should be looking.

While touring mid-town Manhattan, we made a point to visit American Girl Place by request of our 8 year old daughter. From the moment we entered and saw the displays of girls with matching outfits and playsets, her eyes lit up with excitement. All around are American Girls of all skin types, eye color and hair style. With 3 floors... More

You may ask why a review need be written of a store, even a store with American Girls dolls. It obviously had dolls- lots of them- and clothes, accessories and accoutrements- lots of those. But what you cannot imagine is the sheer enjoyment your daughter, nieces or young friends will have just seeing all the many displays and vignettes so... More

My wife and I recently decided to take our 6 year old daughter to the American Girl store on 5th Ave in New York City so she could pick out her own doll as a graduation present. Little did I know we would wind up going to the store three times on three consecutive days during our NYC trip! If... More

This is a must do experience for any little girl. It was our Daughters 7th Birthday surprise weekend. She had a wonderful time. Everything American Girl Doll under one roof. She had a personal shopper that was so pleasant and accommodating, catered to our daughters every wish. If you have a little girl this experience is a must do for... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
