    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!!

    Took the opportunity to visit their flagship store, not realising it was multiple floors. Attentive staff ensured you were provided with the appropriate product range and service, making you feel appreciated. Offered refreshments, which was welcome given the heating in the store.

    Such an amazing experience for the whole family. Soldier Johnny was so wonderful! He was funny, entertaining, and informative. He really made the day special.

    Book lovers you have found your heaven. Especially the second floor where the rare books live. It’s a rainy day paradise easy to get lost in all the out of print treasures.

    I have never seen a such good customer service. They are truly in a class by itself! Sure that I will do business with them again.

    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.

    It was great to finally sample Zabar's in person rather than just by mail order. It's the best for classic bagel flavors, toppings, pickles, and coffee.

    This store has it all - vintage candy, specialty candy flavors from popular brands, bulk candy, imported candies & chips, and more! If you like candy - this is the place, and the prices aren’t bad either. I picked up a nice little haul of goodies but I’ll definitely be back on my next visit.

    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.

    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.

    Free candy bar when you walk in. So many options it’s hard to narrow down what to buy. Hard to walk out without buying something.

    Lego Store is a great free, family friendly activity to do while visiting the area of Times Square.

    I came here Presidents’ Day weekend with 3 kiddos ages 7-12. All had a blast, and loved building at the ground floor Lego building table. Even my youngest which hates Lego got into it. We spent 2 hours (atypical) here and I had to drag them out b/c they do not have a public bathroom.

    The store is relatively small and has two floors.
    As a result, the store controls occupant levels. There is typically a line to get in. We waited about 10-15 mins.

    If you are into Lego, The store has some fun and popular displays (marvel, DC, star wars etc).. The pricing is surprisingly not inflated, and typically closer to what you will see online.

    Pros: free, fun activity for kids of all ages who can tolerate Lego. Product pricing reasonable. Staff are very nice.

    Cons: Absent the small building tables on each floor, there isn’t much else to do other than look at displays and products. For those not enamored with Lego, this may be a 30 min activity tops. No bathroom. They recommend you go across the street, which for us was closed the day we attended. Have a bathroom option in your back pocket.

    Disney store is always a good idea. You need to step in and check what thet have because things change quite quickly and it's not so obvious you will find what you found next time!
    a wide range of Disney things and figures of Disney characters. We loved the castle and the escalator area.

    Cut and Cropped is THE CUTEST! They have so many different items to choose from that can be used as gifts to friends (or yourself)! I love the bright colors and the shop’s entire vibe. 😍
