Roosevelt Field fix-up brings 2,800 jobs, Neiman Marcus


I must say I am pretty surprised I guess that puts the nail in the coffin for the Mall at Oyster Bay project (of which Neimans was to anchor).

Neimans has wanted to enter the Long Island market since the 90s but Roosevelt Field hadn't been on tehir hit list I guess they could not wait any longer. This will change the landscape of the mall for sure....great news for Long Islanders and Roosevelt Field...I still remember the expansion that brought Nordstrom here. It will be interesting to see what other stores are planned.

I am wondering if there are going to use the empty lot across from the former COMPUSA and build some type of pedestrian bridge to connect it to the main part of the mall (similar to the Somerset Collection in Detroit Metro area). I can't see them realigning the ring road around the mall and the expansion that brought Nordstrom already made the footprint of the mall very tight.

That could work well especially if they plan to make it the more upscale part of the mall and have it separate from the main, more *common* area. Neimans is a destination and will bring luxury retailers that Roosevelt Field has never had, but most of those stores are already at the Americana............

I went to RF last Sunday for the 1st time in years and was actually surprised at how few people were there. I must say though the place was alot more diverse then it used to be. Caucasians were not the majority.

I would think Nieman wouldn't want it's customers traipsing through the parking garage and then across a foot bridge to get to their space.

The Modells by the mall recently closed. Did the Legal Seafood close as well? Maybe they do something with that space and the movie theater? Or they just put it right in the middle of the parking lot on the west side

nice one yogi. i dunno why they'd want to make it bigger, I think it's bigger than Sea Cliff or Carle Place at this point.
Manhasset much better experience anyway
