The Best Places to Shop in Downtown New York City
Downtown Manhattan may be beloved for many reasons: the awe-inspiring views of the Freedom Tower, the incredible scenes over the Hudson River, the list goes on and on.

At this luxury mall, which overlooks the Hudson River in Battery Park City, you can splurge at Hermès, Gucci, and Bottega Veneta, or you can shop at Lululemon.
