MoMA Design Store regularly sells cutting edge products - housewares, jewelry, furniture, men's and women's accessories, etc. One of its newest products, a tempered glass stockpot with a silicone lid, designed by the Italian Massimo Castagna, is a thing of beauty (the stockpot). The silicone lid, however, while attractive, is something else, at a price of $53. You might consider... More

Every visit to NYC, I make a point of stopping in. Sometimes I buy stuff, but mostly I love looking at the innovative products they sell. From little items to full on furniture, it's cool to see items that have been so well thought out. Most items are so clever. And most or all are available on their website with... More

Near to Time square it's a nice museum with nice modern art. Not that art "to much modern" and understandably.

This is always a stare for me to get lost in. From the moment you walk in the front food on W 53rd Street, you see something that you'll never find anywhere else and that is so rare. It's huge, so allow yourself enough time after visiting MOMA to browse. I love the paper goods, gift cards and thank you... More

I literally spent over an hour here just browsing (and ended up buying quite a bit too!) If you enjoy contemporary design - this has the greatest collection of items in which 'form meets function'. Everything from books to gadgets to decor and clothing - heaven! Definitely a must-see if you visit MoMA. Exceeded expectations!

Nearly everything in this store is Made in China, disapointed! This means for me that you can buy the same items at a fake store and got exactly the same.
