Bay Plaza Shopping Center
The Bay Plaza Shopping Center is adjacent to Co-op City (a more affluent part of the Bronx) and just off Interstate 95 (I-95) and the Hutchinson River Parkway in East Bronx. Opened in the late 1980s, the Bay Plaza Shopping Center is not only a major shopping mall in East Bronx but also one of the largest in New York City. The shopping mall opens throughout the week – general retail hours on Monday-Thursday from 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., Friday-Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m., and Sunday from 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Bay Plaza Shopping Center claims to have some of the highest performing stores on a per square foot basis. There are over 50 department and specialty stores here with big names such as Kmart, JCPenney, Barnes & Nobles, Toys “R” US, and Payless. Other major tenants include Jimmy Jazz, DSW Shoes, Radio Shack, and Old Navy. If you need a bite then there are Burger King, Red Lobster, Bagel Cafe, Gennaro’s Pizza, Dallas BBQ, and Häagen-Dazs. There is also the AMC Bay Plaza, a multi-screen cinema.
