The Palisades Center Mall, often referred to as the Palisades Mall, in West Nyack, New York is the second largest shopping mall in the New York metropolitan area, the eighth largest in the United States by total area, and sixth largest by gross leasable space. As one of the nation's most lucrative malls, the industrial style mall, which houses over 400 stores, receives 20 million visitors a year, and produces $57 million a year in taxes, including $40 million in sales tax and $17 million in property taxes.
Palisades Center is bounded on three sides by major state routes - the New York State Thruway (Interstates 87 and 287) to the north (from which it can be accessed at exit 12), NY Route 303 to the east, and NY Route 59 to the south. It is also located near the Thruway's intersection of the Palisades Interstate Parkway, and is only a few miles west of the Tappan Zee Bridge, which provides access from points east of the Hudson River.
Named after the nearby Palisades, which border the Hudson River and the eastern part of Rockland County, the mall opened in 1998, and is operated by the Pyramid Companies, the original developer and current owner.(Wikipedia)
