    I could not have thought of a more fitting title!! I happen to enjoy Italy and pizza and cannolis and mob movies!! It is all very fancy but I have no money to be going to Italy!! I went to this market today because I wanted to look at it!! It had a ton of stores but I didn’t buy anything!! It also had some interesting novelty pictures which I will add to my collection of weird things I’ve seen!! The stores had pastas and sauce and cannolis and pizza but there was no mobsters which was good for me!!

    This is the BEST PLACE to buy and look books!
    It is a “jungle of paper”. They have everything. If you want a book they have it in three different version (vary the price).
    Also, the book over here are really cheap! It is unbelievable. I swear!
    I love books and I could not believe that I BOUGHT a book for 7$.

    They have all the categories. Also they have best sellers and books for kids!

    In my opinion, this is the best bookstore I have ever been. No feelings, juts logic.

    Place: 5/5

    Amount of book: 5/5

    PRICES: 5/5

    Variety: 5/5

    Environment: 5/5

    Service: 5/5

    I could keep writing about this place but that would be unnecessary. Just go and check this review buy yourself.

    COMPLETELY WORTH IT.

    We were in NYC walking down 5th Ave and my wife had to go in Tiffany & Co. We shopped all floors and she found something she really liked, so we purchased it. The place was very clean and the service was fantastic.

    We did the toy soldier tour and it was a lot of fun. Our toy soldier carla met us at the front doors and she was so sweet and animated. We learned so much about the history of fao, and we stopped to see toy exhibits and demonstration throughout the whole store. We got our own time on the big keyboard and our soldier took several pictures with us. In addition, we had our own personal shopper who went with us around the store and we got a 2 minute spree in the candy store. The kids (and adults) loved it. Carla took videos while we ran around laughing. Would definitely recommend and you're truly treated like a VIP!

    Great shopping experience as usual. Fast service, knowledgable personal. The hardest part is not buying more than you went in the store for!

    BG is always fun to visit. Start at the top if you have never been there. You will be astounded by the home decor and accessories department. Look for the bunny plates and napkins and china. Fun! The staff in all departments is first rate and never stuffy. Just helpful and they love to chat when not too busy.

    The store was big and spacious, the M&M's themselves were sweet but a bit overpriced. The elevator was a bit slow, but it works it is also a good place for pics.
    I would definitely recommend it.

    I've been to Economy Candy a number of times and if you're visiting NYC, make sure not to miss it. It's like stepping back into your childhood as you walk through that candy land. I had pre-ordered some candy which I was picking up today and decided to grab a few more items. As I turned around, I noticed that the line had grown incredibly long. Yamilex, who had just given me my order, noticed my dismay (I was on my way to tutoring and in a bit of a rush) and was able to ring me up on a portable device. Now that is what I call exemplary customer service! Thank you Yamilex - much appreciated! You rock! I highly recommend Economy Candy! I'll definitely be back!

    Visited here after many years. Great selection of deli items and iconic institution. Had some great coffee and a sweet treat in the cafe. Wandered the deli afterwards to get some take home salads and some branded gifts for people at home. Loved how well patronised the shop was by locals. Would recommend a visit if you like good coffee and yummy deli products. Was surprised at the amount of pork products and stupidly assumed the deli catered mainly to a Jewish palate.

    We have been going to American Girl for decades. We had such a great time. Our nieces took their dolls to get their hair done and then went to tea. The staff was great and the store was well laid out. We had not been since they moved the store and this one was a big improvement.

    They have all of the Lego sets you could ever imagine but the store itself is full of Lego assemblies and it's super cool. Even if you don't plan on buying, at least go in and check out their builds!

    Yes, this store stays full but that comes with the territory of its location. I loved finding merchandise here that I can’t find in Disney World, Disneyland, or at my local store. The staff were friendly, professional, and so happy to answer any of our questions or help us take a quick under the floating lanterns. Fun stop on Broadway

    They have everything Hershey you can think of. The salted caramel and strawberries and cream candy bars are fantastic! Also the dreamcicle Twizzlers were great. Can't wait to go back and get more!

    Words can not describe how happy I am with what Kamni and my fiance were able to create. My engagement ring is even more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. She was able to take my ideas of what I liked and wanted and turn those into a stunning piece. I get so many compliments on how beautiful it is. If I could give her more than 5 stars I would. Thank you Kamni, you are truly so talented.
