New Kid on the Block: Saks Fifth Avenue

saks-fifth-avenue-at-brookfield-place-mannequin2saks-fifth-avenue-at-brookfield-place-directoryThe Saks Fifth Avenue department store at Brookfield Place opened this morning. Rather than write a lot about it, I’m just going to run a bunch of photos, because they tell the story well enough—and if you love fashion, you already know that you’ll want to check it out. A few quick notes: 1) You can enter from either level of Brookfield Place, the North Cove Marina side, and Liberty Street; 2) the shoe, beauty, and sunglasses departments seemed especially strong; 3) it’s entirely devoted to women’s merchandise, because the Saks Men’s Store will open at the other end of the mall in a year or so. And a Saks Off 5th discount store is planned for 1 Liberty Place.

Saks Fifth Avenue is inside Brookfield Place at 225 Liberty, 646-343-6300;
