Our History Our History

Our History

The development of Americana Manhasset began in 1956 when the property was purchased by Gerace & Castagna, Inc., a masonry contracting firm, founded in 1922.

The 220,000 square foot open-air shopping center began as a neighborhood strip center, located at Northern Boulevard and Searingtown Road on Long Island's north shore, in Manhasset. At that time, Americana Manhasset stores included a supermarket, drugstore, a movie theater, department store and other various small tenants. In 1971, B. Altman became an anchor signaling the beginning of a shift toward fashion and lifestyle.

In the early 1980's, owner Frank Castagna (son of original developer Ferdinand Castagna), acknowledging the affluence of the community, decided to offer Long Islanders boutiques that would rival the likes of Paris, Milan and Manhattan. Renowned architect Peter Marino began a redesign of the center and it wasn't long before a world-class destination was born.

The latter half of the nineties saw an influx of designer tenants including a collection of internationally acclaimed and recognized brands: Prada, Giorgio Armani and Fendi (Italy); Escada (Germany); Hermès, Chanel and Louis Vuitton (France); Burberry (Great Britain); Ralph Lauren and Donna Karan (USA), to name just a few.

In 2003, nine new stores opened, in conjunction with a 40,000 square foot continuation and architectural redesign of the east end of the luxury shopping center. Many of the new luxury boutiques, including Gucci, Bottega Veneta and Dior, began offering their entire global collections. Louis Vuitton, St. John, Coach and Brooks Brothers had outgrown smaller spaces at Americana Manhasset moved into larger areas in the new section.

In 2006 Americana Manhasset celebrated its 50th Anniversary with a series of exciting events and the opening an expanded London Jewelers Watch Salon & Gift Gallery and Toku, a restaurant featuring modern Asian cuisine, the following year.

Over the next few years Americana continued to welcome new stores including Hirshleifers ETC, Chanel Fine Jewelry, J.Crew, Vince Camuto, Hugo Boss, expanded Max Mara and Cartier boutiques, expanded Brunello Cucinelli and Chrome Hearts boutiques at Hirshleifers and the all new Mens Market at Hirshleifers.

2013 proves to be another exciting year with even more openings and a few expansions – so stay tuned!

Americana Manhasset, a Castagna Realty Company property, continues to evolve.
