Empire Outlets

Mall in Staten Island

Within walking distance of the ferry terminal, Empire Outlets promises to be a game changer for Staten Island. One hundred stores, along with a gourmet food hall, are slated to open in 2018. As with Empire's other outlets, this one will feature well-known brands at knock-off prices.

The $1.2 billion project aims at long last to get visitors to spend some time (and cash!) on the island.
