Queens Center has been ranked as the mall where the most money is spent per square foot in the U.S. A major renovation and expansion in 2004 added more indoor parking and more retail space, as well as atriums that bring sunlight into its four levels.
The mall's west side (Macy's) and east side (JCPenney) do not connect in the basement concourse, nor on the first floor (street level), where the two sides are separated by 92nd Street.
- Well maintained

- Comfortable rest stations
- Range of quality shops
- Driving in area is chaotic
- On the ground floor, a busy street separates two sides of mall
- Elevator wait times
- Not enough eating options beyond fast food
- No destination restaurant

Food at Queens Center MallApplebee's, Starbucks
The basement food court (east side of mall) has lots of seating and food options, but only fast food. Sbarro is a little better than most. The children's play area next to the food court is good for letting off steam, but on weekends it's too crowded for younger kids.

Parking at Queens Center Mall
Two large indoor parking lots ($3 for first hour) are the best bets. There are also outdoor lots nearby. Good luck with street parking.
