We are from Florida and went to NYC for a mini-vacation. We happened upon the AG store in Manhattan. I can't tell you the reaction my daughter had when she saw all the dolls, dresses, etc.. I was quite impressed as well. It's a beautiful, 4 story building with lots of merchandise, but one big draw-back....I find the everything to... More

Highlight of my daughter's trip to NYC. Shopped around, had doll's ear's pierced (no appointment necessary) and had lunch (reservation definitely necessary.) She was only semi-interested in her doll before we came here and now she is officially obsessed. After our visit her doll had to go EVERYWHERE with us in NYC and ate on my lap at every meal....

If your daughter, granddaughter, niece, etc., loves American Girl dolls, they will love this store. I was fascinated by this store! I was with my niece and sister-in-law and we spent a lot of time here. It's 2 stories and is filled with the dolls and accessories. Even a "salon" for the dolls - I was flabbergasted! There was plenty... More

They really make it a great shopping experience for your... More

This is pure heaven for anyone in your family, young or old, that loves dolls. My daughter has aged out of playing with her dolls, but we always stop in to look at each floor and the displays.

Went with my ten year old daughter. She was thrilled and spent a good hour looking around. There is three floors, a mezzanine level and alot to see. Staff are super attentive and helpful. It's a bit pricey but good quality and overall the price is worth it. Looking forward to our next trip to the City.

I took my 4 year old granddaughter to visit the American Girl store in NYC. We bought a ME doll and had a lovely lunch. We were however very disappointed at the historical doll section --all the sections were out of order! I hope this will be fixed soon.

If you have a AG store in your area, this one is nothing special. The staff was amazing though considering the amount of people visiting for the holiday.

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.
