Found the perfect souvenir

Exquisitely simple little earrings, cubes of sterling silver for $35. Perfectly modern souvenir of our visit to MoMA. Most items in the shop were quite pricey, of course.

The store is full of nice, cool stuff. It is a little expensive, specially for stuff you find everywhere, but they have some special items, exclusive for this store.

This is one of the best Museum stores I've ever been in if not the best. There are so many unique items and it's very interactive. If you're walking by or finishing up at the museum, take 30 minutes out of your day for some serious browsing.

The MOMA design store sits across from the entrance of the Museum, somewhat surrealistically surrounded by a hot dog stand, a Brazilian steakhouse and parked yellow cabs. If you like modern art, you'll find plenty of applications of said art –- from futuristic housewares to umbrellas to Andy Warhol posters to jewelry and even tacky cat-clocks -– all expensive, but...

We have been acquiring original art from the various iterations of this store for many years. The unusual collection of products always provides surprises and unexpected ideas for presents or own use. I recommend a stop to see what they have.

Easy to get lost here for hours - always visit here first on my New York trips - great store for gifts to take home with new jewellry designs to interest your imagination. Variety of products from the practical, home-ware, jewellry, watches etc. etc.; so much to take home, I always buy an extra suitcase or backpack for these products.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
