New Yorkers are well aware of the iconic J&R that has been the place to go for electronics  in downtown New York for over forty years.  It’s hard to believe that in the Battery Park City/Tribeca/Wall Street neighborhoods that there is no one-stop shopping place for families. That situation has now been rectified  with the opening of  J&R Jr.

What is perfect about J&R, Jr. is that they sell hip baby gear, strollers, clothes, kid -friendly electronics and toys without a lot of muss. The store is very well-curated with popular and unique brands in every category which makes it easy for today’s busy families to shop and not be overwhelmed by choices. What  also makes J&R Jr. unique are the little touches like a specially-designed stroller runway that simulates grass, carpet and cobblestone so you can try out strollers in normal conditions rather than a store floor.

J&R Jr. also offers regular kid’s classes by MoonSoup, the popular childhood program that currently has classes in Queens and Midtown.
