On Tuesday, a long-empty corridor of the 59th Street-Columbus Circle subway station will reopen as the new underground mall and food court TurnStyle on Tuesday.
Among the eats — if noshing where you commute doesn't put you off — will be more than 20 restaurants, cafes and specialty shops, from vegan darling Blossom Du Jour and crêperie By Suzette, to chains large (Starbucks) and small (NYC/Philly grilled cheese shop MeltKraft). The mall will also include 18 retailers like natural cosmetics store Lush, a Fab.com pop-up shop, Spectre & Co. menswear and various on-the-go necessities (yes, there will be a tech kiosk).
Many of the restaurants will have enclosed seating so you won't have to eat while walking or take it on the train. The corridor, which runs parallel to Eighth Avenue between 57th and 58th streets, can be accessed without a MetroCard swipe. It opens for business on Tuesday evening at 5 p.m.
