The Manhattan Mall, an indoor shopping mall in New York City, is located at 33rd Street and Sixth Avenue. It is one of the few malls in the city that provide no off-street parking for shoppers.This mall is a high-traffic shopping venue and has had A&S and Sterns as anchor stores in the past. Currently the major anchor store is JC Penney. Venture bought the building in 1999 for $135 million and sold it to Vornado Realty Trust in 2006 for $689 million. There are entrances to the 34th Street – Herald Square New York City Subway station and the 33rd Street PATH station (HOB-33rd, JSQ-33rd, and JSQ-33rd via HOB trains) on the second basement level.The mall is located in the high-rise building formerly used by the Gimbels flagship store, which closed in 1986. After a renovation, it reopened as A&S Plaza in 1989. It was originally 13 levels high but difficult access to upper floors made the whole mall a financial failure. Soon after Stern's closed, all floors were converted to office space, except the first and second and the two basement levels.

  • Shopping always worth. If you have time to meet. The Mall has a shoe shop on the first floor with good prices.

  • JC Penney was one of our shopping destinations that we probably wouldn't miss in NY because it is (or rather was) client by mail for several years. Expected to find a super store, then certainly we have found items that we know but in a gloomy environment and more (in a basement so without opening to the outside). Back at the hotel after shopping it appeared that there had been a mistake because display at checkout claimed us the prize without the deduction of promotions and I was wrong to pay cash and not by credit card. The receipt indicated the 2 amounts. Without going into details we went back the next day with our purchases and your receipt. We were in good faith but they said that it was a mistake for them, they wouldn't know and camped on their position. Then error or not, I will say nothing but that we talked to continue to buy from them because of our huge disappointment. However the Aeropostale store we liked.

  • a mall, where local multi-brand, cosmetics and clothes in general. In the basement there are 2 giant stores that are worth a visit with good prices. It also has bath, which is interesting since many local Manhattan are take away and no bathroom. The downside is that a Starbucks just take away and then nothing to sit awhile to rest or take a snack. It is not usual in this city to "rest".

  • Very good mall, a bit on the small side however the shops packed a lot into them. Lots of variety too with larger stores like JC Penny with a Sephora and Mandee. Loved Mandee, all staff were very nice.
  • Do. Not. Shop. At. KARMA. First of all I went in the Manhattan Mall thinking I'd find a Strawberry clothing store (which was on the signs) and I found a Karma clothing store instead. Apparently Strawberry had been gone for a while. Fine. I went to Karma because I really needed pants for work (like I literally left work to get pants and go back to work because they have a strict dress code). Not only that, I had limited funds at the time so I really needed to find what I was looking for. I got the pants, went into the dressing room and it looked like an empty stock room. It was terrible and I could barely open the door to get in. No chairs and nowhere to hang my clothes and purse. But I did get a pair of pants I thought would be dress appropriate. Come to find out the pants had to be a suit-type material. Okay fine. I go back to Karma less than 5 hours later only for them to tell me that not only can I not get my money back, I couldn't even get a STORE CREDIT because the tag was off. The pants were perfectly fine. Not to mention the guy working there was extremely rude and nonchalant. So I ended up losing about $23.00 on a pair of pants I did not need. This was the worst shopping experience I've had in a while and I never rant or complain about anything but this is ridiculous. I will NOT be shopping here anymore and will definitely discourage my friends and family from shopping there.
  • It's okay. There are only a couple of decent stores, like JC Penney and Express. The bathroom is a bit gross. You're better off going to the bathroom in JC Penney.
  • Haven't been to this mall in 3 years it changed so much. There were pockets of empty spaces. Small mall but easy to get around where ever you need to go. I believe jc penny is still there. Overall not your average mall if your looking for high fashion brand.
  • i love Manhattan mall, i don't particularly like that they took the food court out but i guess jcpenney needs all the space they can afford. :
