Who doesn't love a great mall shopping trip? Sadly, many New Yorkers don't have a car. Westfield Garden State Plaza offers a solution--a shuttle between Times Square and the fabulous NJ Mall.This service is smooth and a great way to shop tax-free this holiday.
I road tested the service last week. First I headed to get FREE Tickets at Madame Tussauds Times Square. The shuttle runs Monday through Saturday from now until December 24. Departing Times are 9:30am, 11:00am, 2:30pm. Once I had my ticket, I waited for the shuttle across the street from Madame Tussauds on 42nd Street between 7th & 8th Avenue.
The bus ride was smooth and took about 45 minutes from NYC to the bus terminal at the mall. Once at Garden State Plaza it was a quick walk to the mall from the parking lot.
I wanted to pick up some great gifts...but we got a little by all the sparkly distractions like the sequin dress at JCP and the camilla ring at Francesca's. And of course I needed to fill up at 16 handles--don't have that spot in Brooklyn.
Here's what I found: a fabulous fur vest at Juicy Couture, luggage from TUMI and some amazing flats from Charlotte Olympia and Deborah Lippman from Neiman's.
With everything checked off my list, it was time to return. The shuttles leave from the same spot where they came in (near California Pizza Kitchen and Neiman Marcus). Return times: 1:00pm, 4:00pm, 6:00pm. It did take about 90 minutes to get home--so be sure to allot enough time for your return trip. And remember to keep your ticket! You'll need it to get back on board. I was thrilled with the clean, safe, service and give this a bug thumb's up!
