Foreign Journey: New York, New York 3: Woodbury

In the outskirts of New York City, lies this famous factory outlet stores. Probably one of the largest in the world.

For shopoholics, it is quite a paradise, due to cheap prices in relative to the flagship store of the same brand in downtown New York, or any other major cities. However, their quality, selections, are pretty much limited, perhaps explaining their cheaper prices. In addition, visitors will have to travel some distance from the city to get here. A Greyhound bus, for a return trip, cost a whopping USD39. So in the end, not much savings might occur.

It may be a shopping area, with hundreds of stores and thousands of people. But it is surrounded by hills and forest, providing a contrasting scenery.
