Just a few minutes’ walk from Union Square is the biggest urban shopping mall west of the Mississippi. Outside, its architecture is reminiscent of classic Latino, while the interior is like an enormous spiral, with curving escalators and vaulted ceiling. The five floors feature such diverse brands as Abercrombie&Fitch, Adidas, Michael Kors, Swarovski, Bloomingdale’s and Samsonite, as well as cafés, restaurants and even a spa.
