You can find something for everybody and anybody here...including yourself. Lines were long and the store was crowded because of the holidays but they are organized and the lines go quickly.

I had fun walking around the store, looking at all the unique things there. The store managers are good at finding almost art pieces themselves to be in the store, but it was waaay too expensive. Although, going into a store like that, you kind of have to expect that.

for unique gifts, design oriented and wonderful books and cards this is a must. There is a kids section that offers books, toys and craft items you won't find at anywhere else. THere is also a store across the street that has more housewares, jewelry, wearables as well. Worth it!

Great selection of interesting things. Prices didn't seem too crazy. Perfect for a souvenir or gift. The full store across the street has better selection than the gift shop inside MOMA.

As others have said well selected stock at good prices. There's also a branch at Spring Street in Soho. Buy $100 or more worth of product (before tax) and get free entry to MOMA ($25). I think this holds until end Nov 2014, but check it out with them

unique gifts and interesting art. Didn't buy as it was very busy the day we were there. Interesting to look at though.

Very unique store if you're looking for a funky gift for someone (or yourself). Prices were a bit high, but otherwise cool store to check out.

There simply is no better gift shop in Manhattan. It is leading edge, unique, well-priced, accessible, fun, educational, tasteful! I go here every visit to NYC and buy tons of stuff to take home to friends and family. You can get great things for $5, $20, $50 - it fits every budget. There are things for kids, adults, Mom &...
