I brought my goddaughter to NYC for the day. She wanted to visit the American Girl Place. Unbelievable how many dolls and accessories they have at the multi-floored store. We spent a fortune but she was happy. I thought the hooks in the bathroom to hold the dolls as you use the facilities was great and unique!

So we stumbled upon this store while out sightseeing. My daughter was immediately upset because she had left her American girl doll at home. We bought her and her doll matching shirts and she tried her shirt on in the store. After we left she realized that she left her sunglasses (that were a birthday gift) in the store. We... More

My daughter was really wanting to go here with her AG, so we went and ended up spending almost 2 hours trying to decide what to get. The store is nicely laid out into the different areas and has some repeat stuff in each. Of course the stuff is expensive but I knew this going in.. We tried to do... More

Huge store. Every girl's dream store. They had everything. I do wish they had a shorter wait time in the salon. We had to wait an hour to get my daughter's doll hair done & it was a Wednesday late morning. We will be back the next time we come to the city.

Lunch was really a good value and it doesn't hurt that little girls get to eat with their dolls who also get plates. All the American Girl dolls and "stuff" are here. My granddaughters just loved looking at it all. The staff is soooo helpful and friendly. The wait staff is super. It is a great place to visit with... More

We have visited AG stores in NYC, Chicago, Ohio and LA... You can easily spend hours here so if you dare to enter this store, plan at least 2 hours for shopping, eating, and designing... They have a design center where you can create your own bag, shirt... Whatever. Super cute and the cost is very reasonable! My daughter designed... More

Me and my daughter came to have 4pm tea. Lots of birthday celebrations happening, very cute decor and appropriate. The waiters use a special high chair for the dolls to join the meal. But for the food,, while it was somewhat creatively prepared, the little tea finger sandwiches were stale, it was overall just fine but not mind blowing. The... More

$21 was a good deal for a tea in NYC with your American Girl doll. Food was kid friendly but also enjoyable for an adult. There was plenty of food and the non alcoholic drinks that were included worked out fine. The room is very pretty. The highchair for the dolls is adorable. They give the kids a tea cup... 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.
