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.
