Possibly. Well, at least New Yorkers will be privy to a taste of suburban life with the opening of a branch of Target – America’s 2nd largest discount retail store. Opening its doors in Midtown Manhattan at 112 West 34th Street, the third location in Manhattan will open three days from now.
For Manhattaners – veteran and newbies alike – this is not the first in a great move. At one point Target was not known for its presence in NYC. But today that is no longer the case, with another one due to open next week in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn as well as one in East Village next year and two more in the region in 2019.
And there is more positive suburban-style news for NYC. Insider City Guides recently ranked Brooklyn Bridge Park in its sightseeing research article Six of the best: City Parks for its “unmatched Manhattan views... manicured lawns and six (so far) re-purposed piers [featuring] a festival feel on summer weekends.”
Perhaps the suburbs aren’t so far away from NYC after all.
