We visited 3 floors. So many dolls and clothing. You can make your own t-shirt for child and doll, a hairdresser and also ear piercing. Amazing for any child. Bought my grand daughter a doll, 4 outfits and a comb for less than $200.00.

My daughter and I love this place. Everything is so well displayed and the people are so helpful. They have multiple floors (I think 4) including a doll hospital and a doll salon. The hair salon is very well priced. They also have a restaurant, but you must have reservations (call ahead of time). We had reservations for the afternoon... More

We came expecting an experience like the AG Place in Chicago, but got much more! This place is Macy's + Heaven for the girl at heart! Our only disappointment were the men's bathrooms. There are several single dads and married dads who bring their little girls to the restroom. The women's restroom was as fancy as the rest of the... More

My wife and I went with our ten-year-old daughter, who loves American Girl dolls. She had a great time. We parked about 10 blocks away for $25 for minimum 4 hours. We had to stay in the garage for at least 4 hours to get the $25 rate which was kind of odd. I guess that's pretty good for parking... More

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

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.
