This mall is definitely one of the most expensive and most controversial out of all NYC malls on this list.
The Westfield WTC is built right in the Oculus Transportation Hub, and it certainly stands out with its architecture.
Even if you can’t afford most of the stuff inside the 100-plus stores, it is still a great experience to look around and browse the high fashion on display.
Address: 185 Greenwich St, New York, NY 10007
This is a more traditional shopping mall, but with plenty of high-end shopping to purchase. You’ll get a wide range of brands here, from Chanel, Hugo Boss, Dillards to Swarovski.
If you follow the stairs to the basement, you’ll be able to pick up some fresh organic snacks at the Whole Foods Market below.
Address: 10 Columbus Cir, New York, NY 10023
This mall is distinctly New York, located right off the subway line and no traditional parking lot available.
It’s a great little mall; you can find a humble selection of stores to pick up some great deals—Victoria’s Secret, Barnes and Noble, Hallmark, with a JC Penney taking up the bulk of the lot.
You can take a line from this mall directly to New Jersey, so it’s a nice segue.
Address: 100 West 33rd Street, New York, NY 10001
Although the attraction to Grand Central is the station itself, there are also plenty of unique shops that you can pick up some new clothes and accessories.
The food court here is a cut above what you would normally find at a shopping mall, too—delicious Asian, Indian, Mediterranean, and of course, the classic New York hot dog.
Address: 89 E 42nd St, New York, NY 10016
This mall is a massive 440,000 square foot plaza with everything you could possibly need. All the categories are covered here: Best Buy, Target, Macy’s, and a Designer Shoe Warehouse. Pick up some household supplies while shopping for a new look, it’s all here under one roof.
Address: 90-15 Queens Blvd, Elmhurst, NY 11373
You have a quite large variety of shopping options at Staten Island Mall. You probably won’t be able to visit each one for more than a minute or two if you plan on covering the whole mall in one day. Plus, it has a nice little market that sells fresh produce, so you can supplement your meal at the food court, if you wish.
Address: 2655 Richmond Ave, Staten Island, NY 10314
We would say that Newport Centre Mall is the most affordable mall among the other NYC shopping malls, thanks to the lower taxes in the state of New Jersey. Even the theater is cheaper here. You could travel directly to this mall from the Manhattan Mall if shopping is your priority.
Address: 30 Mall Dr W, Jersey City, NJ 07310
