Manhattan Mall, New York City
(2.6/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • I would've loved to do some shopping here. It is meant to be open until 9pm. We arrived at 8pm and most of the shops were either closed or closing. Followed the rest of the crowd in through the entran...  more »
  • Obviously, the location is central and very convenient to get to. However, this is just an old mall - nothing unique about it. When in NYC, you can find everything you look for in specialty and impres...  more »
  • A shopping centre with a top location. But many of the stores are beneath contempt, and several floors of empty premises pulls down the whole feeling. JC penny has the 2 lower floors and it feels dark and shady and not very nice.

  • Depressing and dingy, this architectural equivalent of Pamela Anderson. The spaces prime location gives it insane potential, but like many of the businesses in that part of manhattan: it needs an insane overhaul if it expects to draw crowds. Inside, a lonely Starbucks commands a prime view of the death of the shopping mall. Overlooking a neverending stream of "going out of business" sales, the baristas act as comforting tour guides to the bewildered and unlucky few that wander in for a Pumpkin Spiced Latte. The flickering fluorescent lighting casts a grim spotlight on the cheapness of mass produced America. Walking out of this mall I usually have the urge to run home and throw out my possessions, taking up the ascetic life of a monk.
  • THE MANAGER IN THIS STORE IS THE WORSE! I love mandee, I do most of my shoppings at mandee because I love their clothing style, but clearly they care more about money than they do when it comes to the satisfaction of their customers. I bought a coat there and since I went there at around 8:30pm, I was rushing so I did not have time to scrutinize it. When I was about to wear it 5 days after, I saw that the arm was ripped. I couldn't see it when I was buying it because it was all black. So when I went to return it, I explained them that the coat was already damaged when I was buying it and I didn't notice it. When the manager came, she told me that I couldn't return it because it's been a week. The return policy states clearly in the receipt that you can return items WITHIN 15 days. I was so shocked and the manager was soo rude that I couldn't even utter a word. I didn't want to argue with her or create any scandal. I just throw her the coat and left. I worked so hard for the money I used to buy that coat. It was my only hope, and they would not exchange it. They can keep the coat and MY MONEY. But, they will lose more than that!!! I didn't steal that money nor did anyone give it to me! I earned it decently. So if they think they can get away with it that easy, THEY ARE MISTAKEN!
  • They do not have a big selection of stores and not to mention no food court. If you looking for a restroom then go to Manhattan mall other then that its a waste of time. I went into the store name "Karma" a place that sells ladies clothes. I seen a dress I did want but someone tried the dress on and got deodorant all over this black dress, I asked if they had anymore of the dresses and the lady didn't understand what I was asking her, so the guy that was ringing up the pants repeated what I said in there language and she moving her head saying no. I said well how about giving me a discount and I will take it so now they talking in there language back and forth I asked for the manager they call this other man over they not talking "English" at all and he said no I can't give you dress for discount, I said that dress will not get sold with all of that white stuff on it for the full price. I could not believe the manager refused to offer a discount bad customer service, always consider what your customers suggest it is part of keeping your customers happy and how you treat your customers reflects alot about your business.
  • Well priced clothing stores from JCPenny to Express. When I went, the bathroom on the second floor wasnt working so all men were redirected to the JCPenny Bathroom down on the lower level which had an influx of people coming through
  • This mall is a horrible representation of New York shopping. Retail stores usually open and end up closing down because of how bad business is I.E aeropostale, victoria secret, proactiv, strawberry. Just a horrible selection of stores are here now.
