Sophisticated and Stylish
As one of the New York metro area’s most affluent counties, Westchester has a rare concentration of quality malls. Here are a few choices:
Ridge Hill in Yonkers offers a town-square ambience and stores like L.L. Bean, Sephora and the Republic of Couture. The kids will demand a visit to nearby LEGOLAND® Discovery Center. Or take in the latest big-screen blockbuster at the Showcase Cinema de Lux theater.
Hundreds of years ago, Native Americans bartered wares at the spot where, today, the Cross County Parkway meets the New York Thruway in Yonkers. It’s a fitting location for an enduring Westchester mall, the Cross County Shopping Center. A complete renovation, covered free parking, children’s play areas, and more than 100 stores, from Macy’s to Swarovski to Aldo to A/X Armani Exchange make this a shopping mecca.
“Destination Shopping” is the only way to describe The Westchester in White Plains. The ambience is elegant — think skylights, marble floors and plush seating areas — and the store roster includes the most prestigious names in retail: Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Tiffany, Louis Vuitton, Omega, Burberry and David Yurman, to name just a few.
For a budget less lofty, head to The Galleria at White Plains, where Macy’s and Sears anchor a multi-level mall offering favorite brand-names like Victoria’s Secrets, Old Navy, Forever 21 and some 120 other stores.
The Cortlandt Town Center in Mohegan Lake features 45 local and national retailers and a movie complex.
The Source at White Plains includes Dick’s Sporting Goods, Whole Foods and Raymour & Flanigan Furniture.
