Interesting place. Some stores, outlets and several restaurants. Best to go in the evening so you can visit the shops and stay for dinner (better than lunch). Varied tastes and food choices of all kinds and pockets. Worth the visit. Easy access by subway too.

It's the Assemly Row stop. It's relatively new. If you walk across the car park from the stop you are at the Outlets. Happy Shopping
