November 19, 2008The New York New York Shopping Center is connected by pedestrian from Taipei 101 mall on the second level. The building has mainly large glass windows and from the overpass you'll definitely notice the huge sign "New York New York".
Roaming around the area we chanced upon a small food court at the basement level of the shopping center, but we never really tried their offerings since we were still full at that time. Here, you can find products mainly from the US with many casual brands such as Guess, Miss Sixty, Replay, Polo Jeans, Hanes and many others. There's nothing really unique about the stores but this is a fun place to go if you're looking for great outdoor coffee and snack bars. It also features a replica of the Statue of Liberty placed outside near the Cold Stone Creamery and Starbucks.
New York New York Shopping Center is located in the center of Xinyi Circle, Songshou Road, Taipei. The nearest station is Taipei City Hall, a 15-minute walk to Songzhi Rd., Songshou Rd. entrance.
