Manhattan Mall, New York City

2.6
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 actually work right around here so I frequently pass through. It's a decent sized mall with several stores. It's easy to access since theres a subway station below (past JCPenny). Looks pretty lit u...  more »
  • This Mall (shopping centre) is very close to Macy s and if you have time I recommend you to visit. In itself the Centre is fairly small and crappy and bargain shops, but I recommend it because in the floor below is the interesting thing. You agree to JC Penney and here you will find real bargains if you can take your time. There are few tourists and little crowd, only to find people from the area and as I said there is a mishmash of clothes, footwear and things for the home.

  • It's good shopping spot, but there's no free or paid parking and food court. Place is always clean and inviting. Security Guards are on duty for safety. Staff is friendly and welcoming. There's a vendor selling facial and body scrub lotion. If you're coming and thinking about dining inside the mall, then you've come to the wrong place. Otherwise, I'd recommend this shopping center.
  • If it’s anywhere else, it’s the malls that are all hustle and bustle and the streets that are quiet in comparison; but this is Manhattan. This little gem of a mall is where you can find some peace and quiet from the crazy crowds outside. Recommended as a point of meeting people.
  • Close to the Subway, which is a major plus for people trying to get here around Herald Square. There are only a handful of stores (most namely JC Penny and Express). Outside of there, there isn't that much of a reason to come here. There aren't any food courts... which is definitely a negative. You'd be better off shopping in the giant Macy's across the street.
  • One can find very good clothing items at reasonable rate in some shops depending depending on the season. The small stalls selling beauty products in common area sometimes give heavy discounts, so worth trying. Location with respect to commute and eateries is highly convenient. Worth checking out in the month of October for discount offers.
  • This mall should be ashamed, it isn't representing for New York City at all👎🏻!!! They need to do something with it .Open it up somehow ! Make it bigger and add more stores or something.When tourist come to our city they may not know about queens or Long Island and of their outstanding malls. It is bad enough that everything is cyber . They consider the demographics not every women is a size 0 be realistic. Not every man wear a size 34. These owners should be realistic and add in normal size clothing or plus size. Plus , they need to put in telephone vendors you know Sprint, T-Mobil and so forth . Then on top of it all , they place these corny security guards in JC Penney's as though people want to steal from the low class store ... Oh please!
