    The line always moves faster than you think. Start in the basement for frozen + pantry stuff, move upstairs for fresh. Don't abandon your cart in the line to shop for 3-5 minutes. Reach! And jam 🎧.

    Whether you're headed for an upscale night at Lincoln Center or a dirty rock show at Terminal 5, stop here first and snack on their phenomenal dark chocolate peanut butter cups. Smooth and deeelish!

    Great (and reasonably priced) for frozen food, dry / canned goods and beer! The line isn't as scary as it seems (unlike 14th St.). Wish they could have a wine store at this location too!

    This store is a daily shit show unless you come early in the morning before 12 or after 8pm, otherwise be prepared for chaos! There is even an occasional line outside to get in which is just insane!!

    A grocery store of organized chaos. Avoid during peak times - the after work crowd is intense and they'll often turn people away if lines are too long. Fairway and Westside Market nearby are good alts

    Cut you some flax. Try adding flaxseed or its oil to your meals. Trader's has it golden roasted, milled, whole, in cereal, in oatmeal. The health benefits are plentiful and the taste is yummy.

    UWS is sooooo happy with TJ's up here! Lines aren't as outrageous as the Union Sq. one, and prices are way better than the Whole Foods not too far away (on 60th) even though food quality is similar.
  • Gajtana S.
    Most spacious and spread out of all the Trader Joe's I've been to in NYC. This is my fifth. More cashiers than other TJs so the line moved quickly on a Wednesday night.

    Shop for everything you need on the Downtown floor first, then get on the line and collect things like milk, eggs meat and veggies while you are on line traveling to check out.

    The most civilized T.J.'s in Manhattan hands down. Typically not crowded (nothing like 14th St.) & nice/helpful staff. The prices are great & nearly everything is quite good!

    Huge huge line and incredibly crowded. But things move fast and the food is high quality and inexpensive. Even if there's a line outside, don't let it deter you.

    First Trader Joe's experience and it was a goodie. The groceries were surprisingly cheap, didn't expect it at a store like this. The beer is also extremely cheap for Manhattan.

    The staff here are always the nicest ever. Also, be nice to the world and bring a reusable shopping bag - if you do, they'll put your name in a raffle. ;)

    They keep the inside non-crazy by limiting the number of ppl who enter at a time. Seems insane that stuff like this happens on a regular Sunday, but that's manhattan for you.

    If you have to move your car for street cleaning during the weekday come and park at the meter and load up on cheap groceries for the week with no crowd/no line!

    The most pleasant and helpful staff of any store I've ever been to in NYC, and I've been to a lot of stores in NYC. Kudos to the staff and management.

    Part of a mid-size specialty food market chain. Has a variety of organic produce and raw nuts and seeds. Perfect place to shop while doing the Dherbs.com FULL BODY CLEANSE.

    I am a fan! It stinks the lines are always so long but everyone has caught on to the TJ craze! Patience is a small price to pay for great products hey? My dog is addicted to the wheat free treats!
  • Tricia T.
    Everything. Absolutely everything. Grab a basket, get what you need downstairs, and then get in line and shop as you wait! It's the best way to maximize your time.

    Map it out first before starting to shop if it's your first time, or else you'll get home and realise you forgot to buy milk to go with your cereal.

    Sooooo happy to have Trader Joe's right on 72nd & Bdwy! I totally bypass all the other "gourmet" markets -- TJ is my go to for just about everything!

    Not as crazy as its Union Square brother (and there’s no wine) but you’ll forgive the lines when you get home and enjoy your delicious and inexpensive groceries.

    Avoid going late nights as aost all stock is gone. Also weekend afternoons are a nightmare, even so this place is awesome and the lines move quick.

    Inner peas: great snack. Not too bad for you. Cookie butter: eat at your own risk. Highly addictive, delicious and definitely not good for you.

    Great place to get only half the things you need and have to go to fairways anyways. Oh, but there's always a line, so it must be special.
  • Elias F.
    Elias FriedmanOctober 17, 2010
    Not much selection, don't understand all the hype. Slightly lower prices aren't worth the extra walk through the nasty 72nd, Amsterdam & Broadway intersection. Stick with Fairway.

    The chocolate covered peanut butter pretzel bites are dangerously good. So are most of their treats. Lines are always long, but move well.

    Ignore the "special" that pops up when you check in here. There's no wine at this location and, well, "great deals" on wine aren't specials.

    Only go to this one if ABSOLUTELY necessary. Poorly organized, picked through, small selection, too tight for carts, claustrophobic! Chelsea is the way to go.

    Love Trader Joe's but this one gets so crowded. Really solid produce though. And so much cheaper than any other store.

    I forgot to get a basket and of course picked up too much stuff. The lady behind me insisted on offering the free space in her cart! Love the energy here!

    They run out of kale pretty fast, but if you call in the morning and "reserve" it... They"ll hold it for you until the end of day. Kale: the popular green du jour.

    Sucks its the only one in the city but the line does move faster than you think. Just come during off hours. So worth it

    Go before 1pm on the weekends to avoid bigger crowds, but bring your patience for crowds and pushy shoppers every time.

    Their FourSquare "Special" is just an AD, not a special. Big stores should know better than to create ill will. Tell 'em so!

    The best place in Manhattan to buy groceries, but don't go late because you won't find a lot of things.

    The pumpkin bread mix is great! The chocolate lava cake is amazing! The frozen 4 cheese Mac & Cheese is soooo good!

    Lines seem long but they go fast. Make sure you skip the aisles the lines goes in so you can shop while you are moving in the line.

    Chicken Caesar Wrap: $3.99 Banana: $0.19 Kind Bar: $1.49 You can't beat the price and its good for the bod!

    I want to love it here, but lines are always way too long and they are always out-of-stock on so many items.

    The lines were not as scary as anticipated...but Sunday night is slim pickings for some items. I'm going to try early morning next time.

    Don't worry about the line because it moves very quickly. But do take time to enjoy the artwork

    Get in the right-side line, and plan your shopping so that you pick up everything on the upper floors you pass in line.

    Always a busy place. Avoid going on Sunday mornings. They don't seem to have all there stock in by then

    If you're coming for the vacuum fried banana chips you're shit out of luck because this location NEVER HAS THEM

    Disregard the name of the store, they won't actually trade with you, they make you pay for everything. Very misleading.

    Don't freak out if the checkout line looks really long - it moves fast! Check those bad vibes at the door!
