Went here during my stay in New York. I'd absolutely LOVE to visit again. The prices are so, so good (especially in comparison to Europe!) and there's a huge selection of shops. Spent way to much money here :)
I have been here a couple of times and always walk away with bags full! I am not a natural shopper, but can lose a day here easily and transport from Port Authority in Manhattan is very easy and only takes about half an hour.
There are plenty of coffee stops and the "dining emporium" to keep my interest levels up!
Easy to get to from Port Authority on 8 th avenue 42 w street. Bus ride takes 20 minutes and your shopping can begin. Bring a cart to begin with and you don't have to carry piles of clothes with you.
If you're in it for cheap prices this is the place. We had to buy an extra large suit case to get everything home to our hotel.
Starbucks on premise is super!
When it comes to shopping, there is something for everyone here, as this is a massive complex; one of the largest shopping malls in north Jersey and the Greater New York City metropolitan area as a whole. There are plenty of different types of clothing stores and I always seem to find great deals. In particular, I managed to find an Under Armour zip-up hoodie at the UA outlet for $19.99 that normally sells for much more. Food court is huge, but it seems to be mostly fast food and other typical vendors you see at any mall so it could use more variety. There are a good amount of annoying kiosks trying to pressure you into buying whatever they're selling so ignore them if you encounter them. There is one "modeling agency" kiosk near the food court in which a couple of young women who "work" in it harass people with children by asking how old they are and if they are interesting in modeling. They ask adults too and the funniest thing about it is how the advertisement on the kiosk says something like "Get your big break today" as if you'll become a Hollywood megastar overnight but I'm sure it's one big scam and I don't mean to go off on a tangent in this review, but if something seems too good to be true, it probably is, so Jersey Gardens could do without this, but maybe not because it is kind of amusing to watch and see how people react.
If you are dropping someone off or picking someone up at Newark Liberty Airport nearby and you need to pass the time, this is a great spot to do some shopping and people watching. If you are just in the area in general for any reason, this is a great hangout spot. Like I mentioned in the title, parking is immensely difficult to find, as this is an ultra-high traffic area, especially on a Saturday and if you are visiting in November or December during the Holiday season, I cannot imagine how crazy it gets just based on how hectic it is during less-busy shopping seasons such as March. If it is busy like it usually is, your best bet to find a parking spot would be to look by the AMC Loews movie theater, though even that area can fill up quick at certain times, just not as quickly as the entrance by the Burlington Coat Factory.
