It’s New & Nearby!
There are always new and exciting stores and venues opening in Battery Park City!
Just an 8-minute walk from The Verdesian, Westfield World Trade Center is "more than a retail destination":
Comprised of 365,000 square feet, The Center will include more than 100 global, local, fashion, lifestyle, and technology brands—along with casual, upscale, and on-the-go dining, featuring established and emerging chefs and restauranteurs. It will also offer a range of services and amenities powered by state-of-the-art technology, as well as must-see cultural experiences and events."
Starbucks Reserve! - New at Brookfield Place:
"Offers the company’s line of rare, small lot Reserve coffees – only available in limited quantity in around 2,000 stores around the world, roasted at its Roastery in Seattle. Each coffee is one-of-a-kind—sourced from small coffee-growing regions in Latin America, Africa and Asia / Pacific Islands."
(You may need some brew to perk up after a marathon shopping trip to Brookfield's new Saks!)
