Smith Haven Mall
The Smith Haven Mall is located in Lake Grove, New York, in the "Mid Island" area of Long Island. The mall boasts over 140 shops and services, with 4 anchor tenants, H & M, J.C. Penney, Sears, and Macy's, all in 800,000 sq. ft. of gross leaseable area, on 1 floor. The enclosed shopping center was opened for business in 1969, and is currently owned and managed by Simon Property Group.
The family friendly services the Smith Haven Mall has to offer are not different from any of those normally provided by a regional shopping center that focuses on the average customer, with certain stores for the occasional upscale shopper. The services for families are stroller rental and diaper changing areas in the restrooms, plus a children's play area. Parking is ample and free, but unfortunately there is no valet parking service, nor are there any indoor parking lots. There have been no major security incidents lately near the mall premises as the security is extremely well organized and structured. The schedule is common for a regional shopping center, the mall being open Monday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 9:30 p.m., and on Sundays from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Dining is quite varied here, as the mall boasts 18 full-service restaurants and eateries in the food court. Unfortunately, entertainment is not spectacular within the mall, as there is no cinema or movie theatre. There are not so many things for visitors to do or see in the area if they may want to do so when taking a break from shopping, except for the Sports Plus center for family fun.
