New York City preview


New York City has numerous retail establishments, however it doesn't have the huge sprawling malls that are found in other parts of the USA. Space is available at a premium in New York City and there are hardly any malls or shopping centers (except for one -the smallish Manhattan Mall on 33rd street and Broadway) on the island of Manhattan. However in the outer boroughs where slightly more space can be found there are a few malls like the Queen's Center Mall in Elmhurst, Queens and the Kings Plaza Mall in Brooklyn.
