Elizabeth Center

13 Elizabeth St.
New York, NY 10013
It's easy to miss the drab office-building facade of Elizabeth Center. Just follow the Chinatown pre-teens down the building's escalator to the basement and you will find a veritable maze of shops selling Mashimaro scented erasers, Pucca-illustrated mugs, soft Piyo Piyo bedroom slippers, and Astroboy cell phone holders. These anime baubles, which range from $2 to $12, will make whimsical stocking gifts for your 10-year-old cousin or for friends who can't resist gel glitter pens decorated with dewy-eyed pandas. As the Japanese say, so "kawaii" ("aww, so cute")!
