After a couple of visits before on our own we were able to take our 10 year old towns to Dylan's for the first time and it didn't disappoint. They were in children's heaven! Well worth a visit, if you can go mid week during the day even better as quit ere but some of the features may not be... More

My daughter loves to visit Dylan's when we are in the city. This was out 4th visit and wanted to try the new cafe. The wait was 10 minutes which is great for NYC and the hostess was very nice. They text you when your table is ready so you can shop while you are waiting. Our waitress was new... More

We had bad experieces in both the store and the restaurant. We went later in the evening on April 2nd. It was a candy store. The kids filled up bags with the usual items you can get at home. Pricing was hard to determine and staff was practically non existent. The kids managed to puchase a good deal of candy... More

This was such a fun place to visit. I took three teenagers to Dylan's and they went crazy.The girls enjoyed finding all types of candy. There was a photo booth where they took tons of pictures in. Dylan's Candy Bar has three floors of sweets. The first two floors are filled with candy and candy novelties such as, tees, pillows,... More

Huge range of sweets of all kinds. A very stronge aroma of vanilla, which could get a bit nauseous after time. Lots of candy themed merchandise and personalised gifts. Pick n mix too.

I have wanted to visit here since I saw Dylan on a show on the Food Network. It is 3 stories of candy!! There is everyday candy, novelty candy, clothing, and even a chocolate fountain to get chocolate covered strawberries, marshmallows, and other things. They have the candy by the pound that you can bag, but I recommend getting one... More

We are extremely dissatisfied with our Dylan Candy Bar experience. We traveled to New York from Australia with our three children all of whom had saved for one year to purchase candy. My two older boys spent $40 each on a "Eighties Time Capsule" only to unpack it on arriving back at our hotel to discover that it contained 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.
