products

the clever thing about barneys is that they have a great SELECTION of products for just about EVERYONE ...from exotic streetwear to obscure designer labels to high end couture collections...not too mention homewares, cosmetics, shoes + accessories...items that you might only find in obscure stores in tokyo, sydney or amsterdam will often turn up here....go straight to the co-op floors for the edgier stuff. food in the basement...

clientele

shopping victims of the world and your grandmother.

service

really depends which floor... though in general it's fairly laid back and freindly...it's sometimes difficult to distinguish the staff from the customers...I must have looked like one of the staff as no less than 2 people came up to me and asked for help.

interior

this building is brand new by department store standards in nyc. It opened in early 90s...the ground floor cosmetics and menswear is mixture of conservative and restrained glitz, while upper floors are fairly bland and nondescript...

ambience
