We used to think this mall was excellent, but they have been losing a lot of stores. Now the mall is under construction because they expect competition from the new Nanuet Mall which has been rebuilt and is opening. The palisades mall right now is a mess while the construction goes on. Their parking lot is bad with many blind spots. The only saving grace of this mall is the movie theatre whice has many screens and is excellent/.

Palisades Center looks great from the outside. And within those walls are some wonderful stores, everything from Barnes and Noble to Macys to Orvis some very fine restaurants and a gigantic multiplex movie theater. But the mall itself can be quite unpleasant to walk through. Yes it has your typical food court and even a Ferris wheel, but it has no esthetic appeal.. Inside it is ugly and industrial. Unlike almost every other mall this is no place to enjoy walking or window shopping.

For most of us who are local, this is a place to be endured, not enjoyed. We go for a movie, for office supplies, some clothing when we know what we want and where we need to go to get it, and for a quick bite when we are seeing a movie or getting office supplies or that same clothing.

Why "tourists" come here and spend the day, I have no idea. And the new "spiffing up" is a waste of money and looks silly to boot. But hey, if they want to bring more tax revenue to Clarkstown? Be our guests.

Shopping mall where you will find anything and everything, but it is just so big that you can easily walk a mile from one store to the other one you might want to visit, across the mall. They have lots of restaurants (sit down places in the same general area, which helps) and fast food stops, as well as a several theaters including Imax. Select where you want to go, and park accordingly.
