The Center for Huntington Station

A vibrant outdoor shopping, residential and entertainment center with a unique combination of specialty retail stores (including book store, accessories boutique, clothing, shoes, bank and etc.) exciting upscale diverse restaurants (Hispanic, Caribbean, Soul and etc) and amenities that include fitness (gym, dance studio and all American sports Restaurant), a central plaza with outdoor cafes and meeting areas, an ice-skating rink (November through March), and cultural outdoor events including summer concerts that provides a neighborhood gathering spot for residents. Not your typical shopping center - it's an experience. In one visit you can pick up a new outfit, buy a new pair of shoes, work out at the gym, buy your groceries, stop by the dry cleaners, grab a bite to eat, dine in or simply enjoy your surroundings.
