About Manhattan Mall NYC: Manhattan Mall NYC is located in the heart of Midtown Manhattan, 1/2 block from the Empire State Building, Penn Station and Madison Square Garden. Its anchor tenant JCPenney is on the lower level, and the main and upper floors are home to dozens of individual retailers to satisfy every shopper’s need. The Manhattan Mall NYC is located at 33rd Street and Sixth Avenue. There are entrances to the 34th Street – Herald Square subway station (B, D, F, M, N, Q, R trains) and the 33rd Street PATH station, (HOB-33rd, JSQ-33rd via HOB trains) on the second basement level. 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. Venture bought the building in 1999 for $135 million and sold it to Vornado Realty Trust in 2006 for $689 million. 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. On April 18, 2007, JCPenney announced that it would open a 150,000-square-foot store at the mall, its first in Manhattan. Retailers and the food court were closed to make way for the new store and the direct underground entrance to the Subway and PATH was temporarily closed. The store was opened on July 31, 2009. Manhattan Mall NYC is considered a NYC icon. It has a rich and interesting history and is a much loved location for locals who choose to do all their shopping in this mall, despite the many others that have cropped up in the region. One of the main reasons for Manhattan Mall NYC’s popularity is that it is close to other popular stores such as Toys “R” Us, Macy’s and the Burlington Coat Factory. Another is that it is above a subway stop.
