The high-end roster at this mall includes Michael Kors, Burberry and a lot more. It also includes dining options like Seasons 52 and the Capital Grill—although if you’re going to a mall, eating at chain restaurants and fast food joints is a necessity.
If you want to go shopping in New Jersey on a Sunday, you need to go to this mall. (The Paramus ones are closed due to blue laws.) It’s one of the easiest to get to from NYC, with buses running directly from Port Authority, and its four massive renovations since its opening in 1969 mean it has everything from the original Sears to an app to help you navigate.
Classier than your average mall, the retail contingent of the 2.8 million sq ft Time Warner Center features upscale stores such as Coach and Cole Haan for accessories and shoes, Bose home entertainment, the fancy kitchenware purveyor Williams-Sonoma and True Religion jeans, as well as national shopping center staples J.Crew, Crabtree & Evelyn and Borders. Some of the city’s top restaurants, including Per Se and a branch of Landmarc, have made it a dining destination that transcends the stigma of eating at the mall.
