Who doesn't love shopping? Okay, there may be a few "not me's" to that question, but if you do I have got the perfect place for you! Staten Island Mall! This mall is located at 2655 Richmond Avenue, New Springville, Staten Island. This is the perfect place to let loose and go on a full-blown shopping spree. There are over 200 stores located in the mall and it is currently the only indoor shopping center on Staten Island.
This mall is owned by GGP INC. and opened officially in 1973. There are two floors inside but in the Macys store, there are 3 levels. Here we have a total of 4 anchor tenants; Primark, Macy's, JCPenny, and Sears. The mall is currently under construction and coming this year,2018, there will be a Dave & Busters, Zara, Movie Theater, Shake Shack, parking garage, as well as 12 unit food court added in a new wing.
During the warm summer months, a carnival comes and sets up in the mall parking lot. It's the perfect place to take your kids, family, girlfriend/boyfriend for a fun day. From greasy carnival foods to roller coasters and late night acrobats its an absolute blast! So definitely keep an eye out for when the carnival comes into town. When walking around the mall you'll see that they're very festive from valentines day to Hanukkah you'll see all types of decorations. During December you can even take a picture with Santa Claus himself.
The Staten Island Mall is a great place to stop and grab food. The food court offers a variety of different foods and walking around you'll smell the aroma of Aunt Annes pretzels and Doc Popcorn's popcorn. There are a lot of sit down restaurants attached to the mall as well such as Applebees, Red Robins, and East Pacific Resturant. Feel free to stop and shop till you drop at Staten Island Mall.
