I may have already reviewed this store since it's only one block from my apartment. I buy most of my cosmetics there. Just want to mention that two of the worst reviews come from the same person. First she says it's a waste of time...More

I loved all about this place. Unfortunally I just found it in my last week in but I recommend for everybody! Cosmetic with good quality and good price. They also sell cheap chocolates and others candies. Just pay attention to the validity of chocolate.

For those who have poorly reviewed the store -- its because they don't understand that's it NOT a high end store. Its part closeout store, part dollar store, part random item store and definitely a place if you're not picky to get new lipstick, mascara,...More

Not worth my time or money. Saw YouTube videos about bargains and got very excited about it. As you go through the isles looking for high end or even drugstore brands you get very disappointed. Try've got old, bad kept items, of completely obscure brands...More

We stumbled on this place while sightseeing. Coming from Australia, the prices here are much, much cheaper than at home. A wide range of cosmetic brands such as Almay, Revlon and L'Oreal, but also a few other random things like Fila moisture-wicking sports socks (6...More

You'll find cool stuff for a few bucks, such as La Roche, revlon or Estee Lauder at a good reasonable price. Sometimes they don't have enough stock, but if you stay a few days in town, try to go back because they put back stuff...More

This is the iconic New York that so many visitors

the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building,
iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal
