“A whole day there was not enough...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

We were in NY and rented a car to get there- by far the best way to bring back suitcases full of items purchased. It took us 35 min. By bus it is also very quick but not as comfortable if you intend to spend money and come back with loads of shopping bags. The outlet is huge with most brands selling bargains. It is not in the open air anymore so rain, snow and cold is not a problem. They have even covered both floors with carpet! Huge parking lot. Do park near the Applebee's restaurant's entrance, it is located right in the middle of the outlet. If you intend to spend money, do not stop for lunch, just a snack. I spend littlmoney compared to what I bought. I had incredible savings at Tommy, Nike, Armany and Polo. Get crazy there and include Forever 21 if you are a woman. I went to Orlando after my trip to NY...horrible! Orlando was much more expensive, lacked sizes and in the stores there was a great mess. Avoid the Premium Outlets in Orlando if you are not going to NY in the same trip

“Strongly recommended!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

I spent 3 days for shopping in Manhattan, desperately trying to find qualitative cloths and shoes at affordable price. 21Centery, Macy's, shops at Prince Street, Manhattan Mall and others are full of trash. Before departure I went to Jersey Gardens and was presently surprised. There are a lot of brands such as Brook Brothers, Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger and others at really nice prices. If I knew this mall before I had definitely went there first.

“Just a shopping centre”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013 via mobile

Don't be fooled this is just a normal everyday shopping centre, nothing was any cheaper than in New York City stores. Only pro was it was indoors. This is not a outlet centre

“Good mall but a bit depressing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

When we visited the mall it was pretty empty. We grabbed a cart for a few dollars to help us carry our bags around.

Managed to purchase a few items but didn't spend too much time there as we were just off an 8 hour long flight so were in a rush to get to our hotel.

More signs for the bus stop etc would be of assistance but overall a nice mall and a great place to bag a few bargains.

“Worth a Visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

Went on the 26th Dec got the 111 bus from Port Authority gate 222 took about 30 mins but this all depends on traffic. Got there just before the shops opened and yes we spent all day until about 18.30 yet we had to skip quite a few shops due to time. Picked up some good deals, Levi's, Abercombie, Tommy etc. Lots of tourists with suitcases, if you don't have a suitcase I would recommend hiring a shopping cart. The only negative was having to wait for the bus back to port authority we could not get on the first four and it was raining and cold they need a better and more frequent service as lots of people use this service.
