FAO Schwarz

No trip to New York City is complete without visiting the FAO Schwarz, the oldest toy store in the United States

The flagship store is located on Fifth Avenue in the landmark General Motors building right in front of the now iconic Apple Store.  The store is known for it’s one –of-a-kind and unique products. No where else will you see toy soldiers guarding the store or life-size stuffed animals or the now famous piano from the movie “Big”.


You might end up spending a tad too much but your children will have a once in a lifetime experience and will certainly remember the trip for years to come.


767 Fifth Avenue @ 58th Street
