  • Not great. Kind of bland. The staff leave you alone. The taxidermy was kind of soulless and on the expensive side; nearly everything is behind glass, or behind a showcase, so you can't handle anything...  more »
  • We went by taxi to Greenwitch Village. There, we went to a nice store and known around the world for selling bizarre products, the "Evolution Store". It is located at the beginning of Broadway and near Washington Square, at the beginning of the island, and is relatively close to Wall Street. Sells skulls of humans and animals, real and in perfect replicas, penis of various animals, and stuffed animals, and posters of filthy animals, among many other treasures. Bought skulls, posters and t-shirts in the store. Almost took a zebra skin, but the price, $ $1,900.00, inhibited me anyway, cheaper than in the local market. A single store and recommended for those who like to surprise your friends with gifts beyond exotic.

  • This is the most unique store that we have ever been in. My kids (ages 8 and 10) love coming here. Every time we are in NY, we go to the Evolution Store. They have items that no other store carries. M...  more »

  • This store was fascinating to say the least. I absolutely LOVED it! The products are very unique and they are reasonably priced to boot! I bought a strawberry conch shell and an urchin in perfect condition for less then 5 dollars. Bones, bugs, shells, minerals, and more: it was certainly my cup of tea!
  • Love this place. Historic pieces for sale. Real items. Stones, fossils, bones, an entire array of amazing looking items. Great staff, great location. I definitely recommend
  • Unqiue store for a unique taste. Sells skeletons and corpses of small animals and insects. Along with fossils and aesthetic elements.
  • This is a fantastically interesting place. Although I can't imagine buying any of their larger products (snake skeletons, model human skeleton, etc.) they do have a lot of happy knick-knacks available that make fine souvenirs. Overall, it's a lovely store to visit.
  • Interesting and a bit odd. Reminds me of peter the great museum with embrios pickled in a jar. Priced are high... Ay least for my taste

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.
