There were some very interesting products here. A little bit of touristy stuff but some things you would genuinely want as well. This shop is located directly across the street from MOMA (there's also a store in MOMA with a slightly different range)

We stopped in the design store rather on a recommendation and it was pretty cool. There are amazing and unusual things on sale that you just don't get anywhere else. That said, it's all at a premium. If you planning on shopping, ensure your budget...More

the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building,
iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal
and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop
