    A shoppers paradise. Kids will have fun just looking at the merchandise. There are lots of things for sale... cheap. Even a tiny live turtle can be had. You'll have a ball exploring this area.

    If you love basketball you'll love this store. Team merchandise for all teams can be had at this exciting store. The store winds down to the lower level where the kids can shoot some hoops or measure their hands against the hand print of the players.

  • 4. ESPN Zone Times Square

    Have a blast in the game room. Lots of arcade games to play. The cost wasn't too bad and it's a fun way to kill an hour. The kids really loved playing here and with the excitement of Times Square it can't be beat.

    You'll be amazed at all the animals that are here in this zoo. It is quite large so plan on spending the whole day. The kids loved it and we were impressed with the many different types of animals on display.
