Some Must-See Locations in Hudson Yards
Today marks the historical opening of Hudson Yards, essentially changing New York’s West Side to a culinary and shopping destination in a deconstructed traditional mall. With the Vessel marking a new outdoor landmark, restaurants like Michelin-starred chef Thomas Keller’s newest addition and luxury shops are all within the comfort of an aesthetic feast. We round up a few highlights from the new shopping destination.
The fifth floor marks the spot. In between all the chaos, Louis Vuitton glows on one of the top floors of the building with a full view of the atrium and the Vessel across the square. The store will feature all the brand’s newest exclusive capsules, making it a new destination for everyone looking to get off Fifth Avenue.
With more than 100 stores and restaurants within the span of 40 blocks, you only need to know one fine dining destination — TAK Room is Thomas Keller’s new kitchen ready to elevate Hudson Yard’s high dining experience to a new level (spanning floors 5-6.)
On the first floor, Coach‘s newest store is just blocks away from their HQ, ensuring that everything is up to its highest standards. The store also houses the designer’s first New York accessories shop, with a collection of scarves, sunglasses, jewelry, watches, bag charms, and small leather goods.
Perhaps the biggest opening of the evening was Neiman Marcus‘ newest flagship, spanning floors 5-7. Occupying the largest space in the mall, the luxury department store offers an immersive shopping experience. At the vast new outpost, customers will find everything from Louboutin to Valentino. There to celebrate the opening was Liza Minelli, who christened the store with a soaring rendition of ‘New York, New York.’
Cartier was buzzing at the VIP launch serving black caviar amuse bouches in traditional uniform on the first floor. As one of the leading houses of luxury, you are sure to secure exclusive pieces of fine jewelry, timepieces, and prestigious accessories.
The British luxury goods brand has opened a 2,600-square-foot US flagship at the mall. The posh new outpost, which was inspired by the designer’s other stores in Paris and London, houses the label’s sophisticated men’s pieces and accessories.
