I never take for granted how lucky I am to live in lower Manhattan with my Family. We loved it when we moved downtown over 6 years ago, but now with the recent retail and commercial growth, it’s truly amazing. Once the Westfield World Trade Center opened, our food and shopping options significantly increased. It also gave us an escape to wonder around in the large white dome structure whenever we feel like it.
Westfield WTC is the perfect one stop shop for all of our “Back to School” needs. There are over 100 retail stores including everything from luxury items, to kids and toys, beauty and health, home decor, electronics and more! There are also amazing dining choices with grab and go options and one of my favorite Italian food experiences anywhere, Eataly!
Eataly is open daily from 7AM-11PM. There is nothing better than walking around the store. It’s the one place you can shop, learn about the high quality food and also eat! Eataly is always having special classes and events in store . The cooking classes and kids activities are always really fun. Check out the full schedule here https://www.eataly.com/us_en/classes-and-events/nyc-downtown that includes Hands on Pizza Making and Wine and Cheese tastings.
You can’t leave Eataly without having some Gelato. Now through August 31st stop by for a size upgrade. My girls absolutely love this yummy treat and with back to school around the corner, this is the perfect way to end summer.
One of my favorite shops to look for eyeglasses and sunglasses is Designer Eyes at Westfield World Trade Center. They have the most luxurious, trend-setting eyewear brands. Be sure to bring your student I.D. to receive a free eye exam and receive “in stock lenses” when you purchase eyeglasses or sunglasses. I can’t think of a better way to start a new school year with new glasses!
Moleskine is another store at the Westfield WTC that is offering a fantastic Back to School deal. You can receive 15% off $50 and 20% off $100. You can easily find any back to school gadgets in this contemporary nomadic store. My son is obsessed with writing and doodling in journals and notebooks. Moleskine has the best selection I’ve ever seen. There is no better way to let your imagination run wild than documenting your daily adventures in a notebook.
One thing remains the same for students… they always need to know what time it is! Classes, schedules, and everything else. Invicta at Westfield World Trade has the best selection of beautiful and unique watches. One would think the price tags would be much higher, but they are modestly priced. Their new DC Comics collection really makes it hard to choose just one watch which is not a problem with the incredible PROMO going on now until August 31. Buy 1 get 1, buy 2 get 3, and buy 3 get 5. Wow! My son wants to collect every super hero! Visit invictastores.com for more information.
My favorite store to shop for shoes is Sam Edelman. They have a beautiful location at the Westfield WTC on the balcony level. They are always stocked with the latest styles and I can always I find something I need ( or want)! This season is no different and during my recent visit I could feel the Fall vibes all around me. They have their classic shoes such as a timeless ballet flat as well as the latest looks. They also have trending clothing items that are perfectly paired with a fun handbag and other accessories in store. One of the reasons I keep going back to Sam Edelman year after year is because they are a brand that understands style can be delivered at a reasonable price point To check out their latest looks visit samedelman.com
There are also so many fun events coming up for the Westfield World Trade Center. Just because summer is ending soon doesn’t mean the activities will stop. Every Tuesday until October 30th come by the Oculus Plaza from 7AM-7PM to visit the Greenmarket and shop the locally grown products. I always love finding fresh fruits and vegetables, baked goods and more. It’s also a great way to support our local farmers.
