You will find a lot of great design pieces, many of them from Alessi. Pieces that you can use at home.

One of our friend from Turkey designed a triangle notebook and now you can find it at the Moma Design Store in NYC! I am proud of him when I saw the notebook there!

Most of us view paintings of Roussou, Dali, Degas, Monet, Mondrian, Klimnt and more contemporary artists in magazines and art books, but see them live is very different. Why not take a day to see them at the MoMA, as well as the sections of photography and architecture.

Really fun store to peruse and find functional items to use. A bit over-priced though -- they would probably sell significantly more if they reduced prices by 15-20%.

We love browsing the cool artifacts in the MOMA Design Store. I bought a pair of lavender colored glasses and my teenager bought some pens and pencils. Lots of unique gifts too!

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood 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 heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the 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.
