This is the flagship store for America's premier manufacturer of fine glass and crystal, said to be the world's purest. The store is gorgeous, and the pieces -- which run the gamut from fruit bowls to sculptures -- are spectacularly crafted and refract light beautifully. Prices start around $200 for a "hand cooler" (a small collectible, often animal-shaped, that fits in your palm) and run into the five figures. The Corning Gallery, on the lower level, hosts rotating art exhibits.
