Grove Arcade Reviews & Ratings
Absolutely beautiful historic structure in pristine condition. Shops are mostly local and a bit pricey, but it's worth a walk around just to admire the building itself. So glad this structure has survived all these years. Check out the middle of the building for some posters with history of the place.
This is a very nice place, however, the shopping could be way better based on the building. I have heard rumors of a "restructure" if they are true this will be a great place to shop in about 6 months!
Very nice stuff. Every genre of crafting was on display. And across the street...shopping for Piwi.
The name does not do this place justice. The exterior of this giant building is ringed with a variety of good restaurants and you'll also find great craft booths set up along the Battery Park side, but once you've explored the exterior, make sure you don't miss the interior of this building. (There are four entrances, one at the middle of each side.) It is architecturally and historically a treat to behold and its history is illustrated on tablets at the center, around the elevator. The interior also houses a good number of quaint little shops of interesting variety and if your feet are tired from a long day of exploring, there's always "Wake", a luxurious foot spa located right in there, too!
My favorite crystal store lives here. Go to Enter the Earth. They have some of the most beautiful specimens and they know their rocks. They are super helpful and good hearted.
