Shopping Mall Shopping
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.

  • It is not a mall big but rather reduced to few premises, among which stands out J. C. Penney, which has various levels with garments for ladies, gentlemen and children; with a little patience and reviewing the various sectors can be found surprising offerings; usually it is very crowded and the waiting is long when it comes to paying in boxes; on this occasion were enabled only a few, making it longer and more tedious waiting.

  • Came here to do some casual Christmas shopping. Its a small mall, but such is typical within NYC. Its not your typical giant multiplex Leviathan that you remember from your childhood, no this place is really more like a collection of stores that you can finish exploring in less than 20 minutes. Good place to quickly zero in on what you're looking for. The lines however are irritating.
  • As far as malls in New York go, this is pretty nice. Clean and easy to find layout. Though the lower levels have low ceilings.
  • Aside from a very good JC Penny there are no major retailers at this mall nor a food court. There is a small Starbucks. There are many mid sized and smaller retailers. The mall has direct access to the subway.
  • I mean, it's a mall. In Manhattan. What the hell are you doing here? Did you mean to go into the subway and just accidentally go through one set of doors too many? Shop literally anywhere else.
  • Visitors JC Penney and got some great deals. Please visit the independent shops such as the shoe shop on the left of of the mall entrance. Purchased a fantastic pair of converses for only $30. Huge thank you to the suitcase stall who sold me a lovely hand luggage for a bargain of $40! Great shopping mall and well worth...

Where to stay in New York City

The first step to finding accommodations in New York City is finding the right neighborhood. Manhattan, where most visitors end up, offers some of the most expensive rooms in the world, though there are lower-budget options, such as hostels with shared restrooms. Reduce your costs by basing yourself in one of the outer boroughs, but beware of low-end motels where you may end up sharing the premises with hourly customers. Alternatively, stay along the New Jersey shore, offering all the major chain hotels at considerably lower prices than their Manhattan equivalents.
