One block from the Warwick Hotel.

Always fresh and interesting. The items for sale are great for gifts or personal souvenirs. What fun to be able to take art home.

Check out the sale section, some very interesting finds. I got a clock that was super neat. I also got some fun puzzles and toys for my niece.

I can't find the Spring Street, SOHO store so I'm writing here. A great store even if you don't buy anything! But how can you not buy something! This store is in a terrific location and the gadgets, books and art make it a toy store for adults!

Great gift shop across from MOMA. They had great jewelry, homewares and even luggage! I bought some neat earrings made in South Africa and a watch. The line for the register moves quickly and the store can get pretty crowded so plan ahead.

This is a SOHO store to end all SOHO stores. Definitely a nice place to browse, SO many cool things. Mind you, it made me ponder quitting my education job to take a job on Wall Street so I could throw away everything I owned and start again with only things I bought in SOHO. But that passed, eventually. All... More

This store is quite an adventure. There is a lot of interesting things to look at and exam closely. You can get lost in this store for hours.

One of the best modern art museum due to the variety of exposures, atmosphere, building interior, emotion. There is also a nice shop with original books, design items and more. Not to be missed in a New York visit.

It's not that you can buy original art here, but the quality of the design items on sale are quite unique, and quite expensive. My wife enjoyed it more than I did.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
