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.

Incredibly creative gadgets are found in the MoMa Design Store. Clearly a good place to spend some time exploring all its unique merchandise. From Accessories to Books, there are many things to find here.

What a disappointment. I thought I would find unusual and interesting offerings, particularly in the way of jewelry and decorator items. What I found instead were products that I could find in other specialty stores throughout the county unless I was after the MoMA logo

There are a few stores in the museum and 1 across the street as well. Apart from art books and souvenirs, the stores have a huge array of design items for the kitchen, for kids, furniture etc. I wanted to get decorative plates but too bad these $450 plates don't come with their own stands. But I always get my... 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.
