Due to its smaller size, the store saved space by trimming down some products, particularly those not suitable for most New Yorkers, such as patio furniture.

A trickle of patrons turned into a swell Thursday morning after Costco opened its first store in Manhattan. The Issaquah, Wash.-based membership mass merchandising chain opened its doors in a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the new East River Plaza development in East Harlem. The store is the fourth in New York City, after the stores in Brooklyn, Staten Island and Queens.
