Cool Subway Marketplace

Cool Subway Marketplace

With the noise, the crowds and the smells, subways stations aren’t exactly New York’s finest attraction. But a new underground marketplace is aiming to make the tunnel under Columbus Circle a destination in and of itself. TurnStyle debuted its 27,000-square-foot retail and food hall this week and it’s worth a trip. The marketplace features more than 30 vendors, narrowed down from 450 candidates to create a perfect blend of gourmet bites and quirky stores. The more than 90,000 people who transit through this Midtown hub can now treat themselves to fresh donuts at Doughnuttery, sample tasty veg-friendly sandwiches from Ellary’s Greens, surprise a loved one with a bouquet of fresh flowers from Flower Girl NYC, get a custom-engraved keychain at Project No. 8 and shop for jewelry, souvenirs, clothing and more.
