The brand is especially popular among teens. As a matter of fact, take a look at my article on sales.

Where can you find an Abercrombie & Fitch store in New York?

There are 2 locations: the largest location on 5th avenue and a smaller one around Pier 17 (South Street Seaport).

The 5th avenue location is very popular and often crowded. Besides, if you try both locations, you’ll see that there’s often a long waiting line on the 5th avenue flagship. Last time, people were waiting 20 to 30 minutes outside under heavy rain just to get in the store!!!

The best tip to shop at Abercrombie & Fitch is to come as early as possible; the 5th avenue store opens at 10 am. If you don't have the patience to wait in lines then you could schedule your helicopter tour and afterwards go to the Pier 17 location where it’s much quieter!!

On this last note, enjoy your shopping!! 🙂
