Newport Centre Mall: An unoriginal, but large, shopping centre
If you are stuck in Jersey City on a rainy day, you can always go to the Newport Centre Mall. It has a movie theatre, a food court, four department stores (J. C. Penney, Kohl's, Macy's and Sears) and the typical array of other shops found in an American shopping centre.
The main highlight of Newport Centre Mall is its size -- it is said to be the largest in the county -- and, judging from my personal experience, the smaller (or absent) crowds compared to the shops in New York City. For example, there is a Disney store here: while it certainly doesn't carry the same variety of items as the one in Times Square, it also has far less customers, which makes for a less hectic experience.
The Newport Centre Mall is open Monday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
As a bonus, you should know that nearby are a Modell's Sporting Goods (611 Washington Boulevard) and a Best Buy (125 18th Street).
