Literally contains all the best candy. It's a fun place to visit. You can easily get carried away with buying lots of candy with a big price tag!

We didn't really know what to expect from this store but I love gummies and thought a visit had to be on the cards. Almost immediately on walking in a store assistant approached us and asked if she could help. She wasn't pressuring at all, just helpful, we said we were just looking, she asked what sort of sweets we... More

This is just a candy store for kids. Nothing special. It was a dream come true for my 8 year old, but I didn't find anything impressive or unique. Don't go here looking for any good quality chocolate.... it's just regular candy.

Dylan's is a worthy detour for any Manhattan visitor. Where else will you find a 3 story candy store! Much of their floor space is set up for patrons to fill bags with a wide variety of bulk candies. It's so easy to over-indulge. The downstairs has more of the regular branded candy as well as souvenirs. And there's a... More

Just a great, cool, fun and yummy place. Kids and Adults will enjoy coming here. It's a sensory overload in a good way. Staff is friendly and helpful.

This store feels like you have been dropped onto the set of Willie Wonka and it is fun and colorful with a wonderful choice of candy. We went to try and have an ice cream upstairs and were met by a very surly hostess who said there would be a two hour wait for a table despite the restaurant being... More

It is absolutely amazing how many different candies there are, and Dylan's seems to have a very large sampling. You can get a sugar high just by walking in the door. And the shapes and colors delight the eye.

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighbourhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
