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.

We went to NYC for half business half family trip and wanted to bring something true American for our 2 year old daughter. We purchased 2 bitty babies, our daughter is stunned and I have to say, this is the right product for your little girl, If you want something superior and in Europe one of a kind. We went... More

Lots of dolls and accessories for the American Girl Doll. The hair stylists are fun to watch as they work on your american doll's hair right before your eyes.

Took my teen daughter who still loves her American Girl Doll, Kit. We had breakfast, made a t-shirt, and got Kit's hair done in addition to shopping. This place is so amazing. There are several spots to take photos with character themes, as well as the entire collection of annual dolls. We easily spent 3 hours here and it was... More

Our fourth annual birthday trip. Doesn't get old. Eight year old granddaughter in seventh heaven. Her little collection is growing. Accessories to satisfy all needs and wants. Very crowded.

This year's birthday present for our nine-year-old granddaughter was taking her on our first visit American Girl Place, having her doll's hair re-styled, and celebrating with lunch in the Cafe. She had a WONDERFUL time (and PopPop - me - survived!) Maria, the stylist, began her career with American Girl when the flagship store opened in Chicago. She was excellent... More

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

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.
