Shopping area near Ralph Av on C train

Hi all,

I'm staying a short walk from the above station and want to know what the closest shopping area or mall is to where I'm based. Is there one that's a few stops away in either direction? Don't need any fancy stores, just something like walmart, or other little shops to get a couple of last min bits before I leave. (Did try google maps). Thanks

There are no Walmart's in NYC.

What hotel are you staying at in that area?

With a name like "godsgloriousworld" and a location like Ralph Avenue, I suspect this is a church related thing.

NYC is quite short on malls; we just don't do that kind of thing much. Fulton Street is a shopping street with lots of small, diverse, independent shops. If you want a superstore, take the C to Lafayette Avenue and there's a Target a few blocks away.

Thank you. Are there a lot of churches nears Ralph Av?? Not familiar with the area, just visiting my aunt. Target is perfect, thanks.

No Walmarts in NYC - didn't know that, thanks for educating me!

There are no Wal-Mart's in New York City - the city and its residents have fought against Wal-Mart for a very long time and we've thus far been successful. I hope there will never be a Wal-Mart in New York City in my lifetime.

We have Target and they're very good. As stated, simply take the C train to Lafayette Avenue and walk to the nearby Target - it is excellent and it is in a shopping center where there are many other stores as well. That is Atlantic Center at Barclays Centre
