Westchester’s 9 Best Malls for the Savvy County Shopper

Ridge Hill and The Westchester aren’t your only choices.



Nothing fans the flames of a person’s love for shopping like Westchester’s sophisticated and stylish malls. Convenience and incredible selection are guaranteed, as each destination features dozens of fine stores representing many of retail’s most-respected names.

Westchester’s Ridge Hill has positioned itself as a bustling, open-air community center set around a village green in Yonkers. The town-square ambience is accented with comfy outdoor furniture, mesmerizing fountains, and a children’s play area. Flex your purchasing power at L.L. Bean, Sephora, the Republic of Couture, and other retailers, and then indulge at one of the many upscale dining options.

The LEGOLAND® Discovery Center and the Showcase Cinema de Lux movie theater are also here.

Another popular place to shop in Yonkers is the Cross County Shopping Center, which boasts a “vibrant spirit” to go along with a fresh, new look. Fifteen buildings house more than 100 retailers, ranging from A/X Armani Exchange to Zales. Plus, kids can enjoy the two new play areas.
