Hudson Yards Is Going All Out to Make New Yorkers Love Malls

Timothy A. Clary/AFP/Getty

“Here we go,” reads the text on a banner promoting the opening of Hudson Yards, New York’s 72,000-square-foot mall, or retail center, or “billionaire’s fantasy,” as New York magazine’s Justin Davidson described the entire housing and retail development.

The banner has no punctuation. How the sentence ends depends on your tax bracket.

If the idea of roaming New York’s first Neiman Marcus department store with the intention of purchasing a designer dress is feasible, you might lace up your thousand-dollar Louis Vuitton sneakers and think, “Here we go!”

Travel to the Hudson River Valley’s Historic Livingston Estates

Desmond Reich

When people think of the Hudson River Valley, generally a handful of properties pop up—Hyde Park, Kykuit, Vanderbilt Mansion, Olana, and maybe Lyndhurst. But one family had an outsize impact on the region’s culture, architecture, and legacy through the variety of estates built by them and others on their land—the Livingstons (one of New York’s versions of an aristocratic family).

Thus, with spring just around the corner (we promise!) Life Along the Hudson: The Historic Country Estates of the Livingston Family by Pieter Estersohn is this week’s selection for Just Booked (our twice-a-month series on gorgeous travel-related coffee table books).

Esterhorn’s photographs are beautiful—capturing each of these historic properties in, literally, their best light. Even ones that have definitely seen better days, like Staatsburgh, are shown in the glory they once commanded. Thirty-five properties in total are featured, enough for anybody to fall in love and add one to their dream Hudson River trip.

Cremieux to Replace SoHo Unit With Hudson Yards Store

NEW YORK — Count Cremieux as the latest upscale tenant to sign on at Hudson Yards.
The French men’s wear brand, which got its start in Saint-Tropez in 1976, will open an 800-square-foot store at The Shops and Restaurants at Hudson Yards, a key element of the neighborhood that is being built on Manhattan’s far West Side. When completed, Hudson Yards will include more than 18 million square feet of commercial and residential space, more than 100 stores, a collection of restaurants, 4,000 residences, a 750-seat public school, a 200-room Equinox hotel and 14 acres of public open space.
The Cremieux store is expected to open in mid-March and will join anchor Neiman Marcus as well as Dior, Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels, Coach, Kiehl’s, AG Jeans by Adriano Goldschmied and Forty-Five-Ten.
At Hudson Yards, the store will be located near Cartier, Dior, Fendi and other brands with a similar aesthetic, said Stephane Cremieux, chief executive officer of Cremieux and son of founder Daniel Cremieux.
The shop will replace the 700-square-foot, two-level unit at 65 Mercer Street that closed in June. That store had been open for four years but the lease was up for renewal and the landlord would not reduce the rent, Cremieux said.

Neiman Marcus’ Ken Downing Designs Flashy Interiors for Model Residence at Fifteen Hudson Yards

DOWNING BY THE RIVER: For those who have wondered what it’s like to live like Neiman Marcus fashion director Ken Downing, wait no longer.
Through a Related Cos.-Neiman Marcus effort, Downing has designed and styled the interior of a model residence at Fifteen Hudson Yards. Downing’s 1,464-square-foot model residence has two bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms and a price tag of nearly $ 4.3 million. Designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro in collaboration with Rockwell Group, Fifteen Hudson Yards has 285 condos varying in size from one bedroom to four bedrooms.
As a veteran member of the four-fashion-week pack (and the air miles to prove it), Downing gleaned inspiration from the world’s fashion capitals for his at-home curation. His fondness for art collecting was another factor in the final edit. There is also an abundance of color throughout the apartment including pink walls and ceiling, a Venetian-style glass chandelier in purple, a multicolored geometric style rug and a vibrant column painted by Brooklyn artist Nathan Green in the master suite, not to mention the turquoise floor-to-ceiling interior in the condo’s library. Reflective surfaces are meant to bring the West Side view indoors.
