Woodbury Commons


A small, picturesque village surrounded by wooded hills lies on the outskirts of a bustling city. Woodbury Commons is a 23-acre artist community with a fabulous theater, an exhibition hall, a restaurant, and more.



The downside of the revenue is the traffic generated by the mall, particularly on major shopping days. Black Friday 2001 in particular was remembered for protracted snarling of not just the expressways leading to Woodbury Common but the local roads as well. Some motorists were trapped on the mall's internal roads for hours.

How I managed to miss this place, which has been around for nearly 35 years, is anyone’s guess. Let me revise that. I had ardently avoided Woodbury Common because the oxymoron of bargain goods made for premium outlets made me queasy. I was not eager to suck hours out of my life just to browse through fashion missteps, clothes of uncommercial proportions or the mustard yellow sweaters that are a universal emblem of designer fail.

Woodbury Common Premium Outlets is an outlet center located in Central Valley, New York. The center is owned by Premium Outlets, a subsidiary of Simon Property Group, and takes its name from the town in which it is located. Opened in late 1985, expanded in 1993, and again in 1998, the center now has 220 stores occupying more than 800,000 square feet (72,000 m²) and is one of the largest contiguous outlet centers in the world. Due to its size, different areas are color-coded to help orient themselves.

Orange County officials sometimes refer to Woodbury Common as the county's cash cow as the sales tax collected on the clothing and footwear sold at the center, even after recent reductions by the state, provides a significant portion of the county's revenue. The center is also a significant part of the local property tax base, particularly for the Monroe-Woodbury Central School District. (Source: en.wikipedia.org)
