What's Your Opinion?

Question: Do you prefer shopping at Gateway Center Mall or Kings Plaza? Why?











“You’re asking the wrong person. I don’t shop much. But in terms of preference, I like Gateway because it seems more inviting and more community friendly. There are umbrellas at certain restaurants. The landscaping is beautiful. We don’t have a lot of landscaping in Brooklyn. We’re in the concrete jungle.”

Allan Volcy, Flatlands



“Gateway. It’s closer, parking is easier. The stores are larger and have more selection and variety. The crowd seems to be more mature.”

Jacky Jean, Canarsie







“I feel like Gateway is up and coming. I would still go to Kings Plaza because Kings Plaza is right there, but it’s harder to park. I’m like five minutes away from Kings Plaza but I like the free parking at Gateway.”

Joel Delince, Mill Basin






“I think for me, I would say Kings Plaza because of the variety. Pandora is over there, Michael Kors, Macy’s, Zales. And they have that cookie shop. With Kings Plaza, there’s so many childhood memories. If you went to South Shore, you would hang out there after school.

Rose Connor, Mill Basin
