I went to the Harry Potter Store in New York on a Saturday morning. I arrived before it opened, and waited in a daunting line but was let right in when it opened. I thought the store was really cute and filled with fun merch.
I feel it would have been even more impressive if I hadn’t gone to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Universal. Still, I got an exclusive house wand and a souvenir t-shirt from the NY based store.
I recommend visiting if you are a fan of Harry Potter and in the city. There are plenty of magical picture spots!
