Two Major Openings in New York

Empire Outlets, New York City's first outlet shopping destination, will launch on May 15, 2019, in St. George, Staten Island

Just steps from the Staten Island Ferry, it will be home to 100 retail and dining experiences. Empire Outlets is one of many examples of New York City’s thriving retail scene. From new boutiques to reimagined icons, the City boasts stores and destinations for every kind of shopper.

Empire Outlets will serve as a welcome to Staten Island as soon as visitors exit the free year-round ferry. With shops such as the Nike Factory Store, Nordstrom Rack and Guess Factory; the outlets’ picture-perfect views of Lower Manhattan; and MRKTPL, an artisanal food hall, there’s plenty to explore. Select stores open on May 15, 2019, with additional openings slated throughout the year. Combine a shopping excursion with a Yankees game and visit to Snug Harbor for an ideal Staten Island summer day.

The new TWA Hotel, opening May 15, is bringing luxury, including fashion, back to the JFK Airport in Queens. Shinola, known for its handcrafted luxury watches, will debut a new outpost in the landmark 1962 former Trans World Airlines terminal. The store will feature a custom watch bar, premium leather handbags, wallets and journals, speakers and turntables. A monogramming station will emboss initials and names on journals and leather goods.
