The official Foursquare page for IKEA USA - The Life Improvement Store.
Love it, but always find myself spending hours here and wanting to pass out upon leaving.
This IKEA feels more Wal-Mart-y than other IKEAs, but as always, the meatballs are 👌🏼
Don't ever think about coming to return stuff on a weekend afternoon. Just don't. Unless you want to spend two hours of your life, of course.
Great place, I'm in love!
When your done getting your home supplies, get a bite to eat!
Great kids toys that dogs will also love!
Worst customer service i've ever experienced anywhere, ridiculous waiting times, and people who don't seem to care if you're there or not... terrible experience overall.
Still one of the only places to get affordable furniture in this city, although you have to run the gauntlet that is Ikea. Don't get anything delivered, just use a cab service.
Worst customer experience ever! Took two weeks to deliver my furniture. Eventually had to go and pick it up myself after waiting three hours. I guess you get what you pay for. Never again IKEA. NEVER!
Worst, but you gotta.
The good: Swedish meatballs, chocolate cake, elderflower juicebox, the free shuttle that goes from the store to the F/G at Smith & 9th. The bad: always terribly crowded; prepare to queue endlessly.
It's not too bad if you go in the morning.
this ikea is hell. at least home delivery to brooklyn is $59 flat..
Be ready for a long waiting on the cashier ... Terrible
Returns and exchanges counter: worse than the USPS' counters. Slow, inefficient. No customer service. People wait for hours.
I love Ikea, my favorite store
Take the fairy from pier 11. Easy, fast and fun trip.
Awesome as any ikea is
New bulk candy section! $7.99/lb of sweet and sour goodness 🍬
My personal playground. Every time I have the chance I came to visit. Love the meat balls and the chocolate.
Terrible service. Terrible, terrible service.
Yessss. Let the hatred flow through you. You know you're going to scream at your spouse, you just don't know when. Great meatballs.
Ikea stocks somewhat inexpensive furniture. The cafe serves meatballs where you can also enjoy the scenic views.
Although in Brooklyn, there is a free Water Taxi on weekends from the Wall St. Pier. Check the Brooklyn store directions (on their website) for more information!
Weekends are the worst here because for some reason, an influx of customers does not warrant opening any extra lanes at checkout.
Sometimes I'll just stop in for a cinnamon roll and a coffee and go sit out back by the waterfront.
A labyrinth. I always think I'm so excited to go to IKEA and then I'm exhausted by the end of it. Ferry is free.
Apart from the lingonberries (which c'mon it just tastes like cranberry sauce) I don't get what makes the Swedish meatballs any different than normal.
The meatballs are overrated
Buy what you can carry, order the rest online for delivery (which you'd have to do anyway). Über home.
Good furniture at great prices.
No one likes IKEA.
Relationship tip: If you go by yourself, you can't get into a fight
Don't get delivery from ikea. Call a car service and save a ton of money. Car service to south slope with $700 worth of stuff was $20.
Furniture looks great and prices also very good. Delivery is terrible. Assembly is not bad.
Kill yourself before going here
A fantastic place to pick up some starter furnishings for that new apt of yours. Be prepared to spend a decent amount of time there. They are. They even have a food court.
If ( weather = bright + sunny and Day = Sunday ) then ' Do Not make a trip to IKEA' else ( ' Long lines. Insane wait times. Frustration.')
Get a full bedroom for 500usd and a full dinner for 15. Bc cheap and good quality can be used in the same sentence.
Free ferry rides, meatballs, and good furniture!
ALWAYS packed and products are often sold out (esp. things like individual shelves, curtain rods, etc.) when they open on a weekday is best. do NOT take the cars there - calling a cab saved me ⅔ cost.
Hope to god the furniture you want is available in self service. If you need to go through the furniture pickup zone after paying, brace yourself for an hour or two of thumbtwiddling.
Great store has everything you want for your home. Quite a ways from the Bronx great views of Manhattan free parking
The line moves fast even when it's insanely packed.
Cafeteria with a view of the statue of liberty
Always go to the food court first. That way you can shop for 5 hours uninterrupted.
Cheer yourself up with a $1 ice cream cone because you'll be waiting to return junk for 1+ hours.
