New York City is famous for so many things. Broadway, Central Park, Wall Street, and of course FASHION. Every major fashion house in the world has at least one boutique in New York.
At the height of luxury is a shopping oasis that lies 20 miles East of Manhattan on Long Island. Americana Manhasset is a one of a kind outdoor shopping center. Luxury boutiques arranged back to back single file style. Designed by Peter Marino - the man who has shaped more luxury retail stores than anyone else in the world. Marino is responsible for the look of Dior, Chanel, and Tom Ford to name a few. In addition, Marino recently contributed to the most expensive retail project in the world - City Center in Las Vegas. Marino designed a portion of the Aria hotel & Casino. There is nowhere else in North East where you can drive right up to an Hermes boutique.
Every luxury fashion house has a boutique at the Americana. Fendi, Gucci, Ferragamo, and Dior - they are all there. Smaller than their NYC flagships, these boutiques have a charm and a sense of exclusivity in the intimate setting.
While the boutiques might be smaller, the inventory is even more luxurious than your typical boutiques. Due to the highly affluent area, companies stock the boutiques with the most expensive styles found in the collections.
Plan an afternoon to visit the Americana the next time you are in NYC. There are great choices for lunch and you can be back in the city before you head to the latest hot spot for dinner!
