When you think of New York City, most people think of stuff in Manhattan. Times Square. The Statue of Liberty. Central Park.
But some people think of something else. Shopping. Not so much the crap shops that line the tourist areas (but hey, where else are you going to find a bobblehead of whatever current politician giving you the finger?), but outlet malls.
The problem was that the two outlet malls closest to NYC were a royal pain to get to. If you didn’t have access to a car, you’d have to take bus from the Port Authority to get to either Woodbury Common Premium Outlets (it’s about an hour north of Manhattan) or to Jersey Gardens (it’s about 35 minutes southwest of Manhattan). And, of course, you’d have to pay $6.50 per person in each direction to take those buses.
Welp, a brand new outlet in New York City has just changed that narrative, and it’s just a 25 minute free ferry ride away.
