The Queens Center Mall, one of New York City’s largest shopping centers, is conveniently located just off of the Long Island Expressway, Interstate 25 and Queens Blvd, on 59th Avenue in Queens. LeFrak City residents living in nearby Rego Park apartments enjoy easy access to a wide range of shopping and dining options at this iconic plaza, just a short walk away.
Opened in 1973, and the home of the US’s first Macy’s to be open 24 hours during the holiday season, the Queens Center Mall has made a significant commitment to environmental sustainability. As a part of their goal to maintain a healthy and environmentally friendly atmosphere for their employees and customers, the mall uses only green cleaning products whenever possible, and has made changes in lighting to cut down on energy use. Their security team even uses electric vehicles instead of those that run on gas.
The Queens Center Mall features a broad and diverse range of shopping options. You can find a wide variety of apparel retailers, including casual stores like American Eagle, Banana Republic, H&M and Club Monaco, women’s clothing retailers like GUESS, Forever 21 and Victoria’s Secret, and sports apparel retailers like Adidas, Foot Locker and Modell’s Sporting Goods. You can also visit electronics stores like the Apple Store and GameStop, bath and beauty stores like Bath and Body Works and The Body Shop, and two large department stores: Macy’s and JC Penny. No matter what you’re shopping for, you’ll be able to find it there.
The Queens Center Mall offers many fun activities for the local community to enjoy. On the first Saturday of every month, the mall offers a kids club in partnership with National Geographic Kids, which features interactive learning and craft activities geared towards education through discovery. Aside from that, the mall features seasonal activities and displays, like an annual Santa photo station all throughout the holiday season.
Mainly found in a basement food court, the Queens Center Mall’s food options are just as wide and varied as the stores to shop at. Customers can enjoy mall classics like Cinnabon and Pretzelmaker, or comfort food like Applebees, Shake Shack, Queens’ only Chick-Fil-A and New York City’s only Cheesecake Factory. Being as the mall is just down the street, LeFrak City residents can head over just to enjoy a good meal, even if they don't have time to shop.
