With a whopping $450-million price tag the Staten Island outlet promises discounts and attractions that will make the 25 minute ferry trip worthwhile.
In a city obsessed with bargains and sample sales it seems rather obvious the need for an outlet.
While developers are adamant they are not looking to be the "Shops at Hudson Yards" it is rather obvious that they are trying to create a retail playground, not just a shopping outlet.
There will be many reasons besides shopping for tourists and New Yorkers alike to schlep to the 340,000 square-foot mall. "Instagrammable ferry voyages", jazz bands, petting zoos and fashion shows add up to the excitement of a bargain hunting experience.
The stores already open are: Banana Republic Factory Store, Guess Factory Store, Samsonite, Lids, Walgreens, Brooks Brothers Factory Store, Columbia Factory Store, Old Navy, Gap Factory Store; H&M, Jockey, Nike Factory Store, Starbucks
Before the end of the summer expect the following stores to open their doors: Levi’s, True Religion, Converse, Dennis Bass, iOptics, U.S. Polo Assn,Royal Jewelers, Crocs, American Eagle Outfitters, Aerie, Broome & Greene, Samsonite, True Religion, Lucky Brand, Parfum Europa, Verizon Wireless and GNC.

America sure looks good for being 232 years old- think she’s had some work done?
If you waited for the last possible second (like moi) to plan how you’ll be celebrating the home of the brave this year, fear not. Here are some fool-proof ways to get your fourth on.
Food. . .
. . .Because the Nathan’s hot dog champ can’t be the only one indulging. Celebrate the U.S. and the N.Y. with a good old fashioned chow down. The Great July Fourth Festival is a down-home American birthday party with a global twist. The street fair showcases 600 international food vendors, as well as arts, crafts and merchandise exhibitors like Indonesian Jewelry and Chinese Pottery. The fun ends at 8, just in time watch. . .
Because what would today be without a little pie in the sky? There are breathtaking views of the Macy’s Fireworks Extravaganza*, which start at 9pm, from all points of the vogue city. The very best are:
Manhattan: Southbound lanes of the FDR drive from 14th to 42nd Street will be open for the public from 7:30pm to 10:00pm.The FDR Drive will actually be closed to vehicular traffic between Houston St. and 63rd St. from 7:00pm until 1:00am. Dancin’ in the street!
Brooklyn/Queens: Great views from Hunter’s Point, Queens, Greenpoint, Brooklyn, and anywhere with an unobstructed view of the East River between 23rd & 42nd Sts.
***Be sure to tune in to 1010 WINS AM to hear the muscial accompaniment
Happy Independance Day New York!!!

Nice ambiance at Pasticceria Bruno in Staten Island. I hear the same is not true at the Manhattan location, but I guess it’s so much harder to pay the Manhattan rent. Go there for the largest assortment of beautifully crafted, pastries, breads and panini sandwiches, some main courses, salads and pizza. It is an excellent place to meet a friend for lunch, take the family for breakfast or just break your diet by yourself. Everything else except maybe the croissants are better than at the Royal Crown, the original “go to” bakery on Staten Island. Pasticceria Bruno is located at 1653 Hyland Blvd, Staten Island, NY.
