AFTERNOON IN NEW YORK
Location: Brookfield Place + Westfield World Trade Center
I’ve spent countless days wandering around Brookfield Place and taking advantage of everything it has to offer from the day it first opened, exactly. I worked at one of its retail shops for over a year and have seen it transform from a chaotic construction zone into the magical place it now is. I haven’t had a chance to visit since I’ve stopped working in the area and I can now take in the location with fresh eyes as a regular visitor. This place is truly amazing!
I've always loved the convenience Brookfield Place had to offer from the selection of shops, dining options, the variety of events to the occasional musical performance. You’ll find it home to high-end shops like Saks, Theory, Gucci, Burberry, and Diane Von Furstenberg. But, a short walk through the underpass leads you to Westfield. There you can find even more shopping options including, moderately priced stores like Sephora, H&M, Forever21, Sam Edelman, COS and much more.
Perhaps my favorite thing to do, when I worked in the area, was to grab lunch from their modern food court, Hudson Eats and sit along the waterfront to take in the beautiful city views on a warm sunny day.
If you’re in need of a date-night spot, casual meet up, or if you are simply looking for something new to do, this is definitely worth checking out! My suggestions: grab a table outdoors at P.J. Clarke's, take a walk along the waterfront, grab some tasty treats from Le District, or simply sit on the steps of the marble staircase in the atrium and people watch - no, this is not weird at all.
