The Miracle Mile is a prominent shopping district in Manhasset on the North Shore of Long Island in Nassau County, New York. The area along Northern Boulevard is well known for its high-end premium open-air shopping center, the Americana Manhasset. It was developed by Sol Atlas.[1]

The Miracle Mile has been a mainstay in suburban shopping and includes the still operational Lord & Taylor, often referred to as the first branch store in America. In addition to Lord & Taylor, Manhasset supported branches of some of the most well known stores in New York over the years - B. Altman & Co, Bonwit Teller, Abraham & Straus, Best & Co., Arnold Constable, Franklin Simon & Co., Peck & Peck, H&M, W. & J. Sloane and a J.J. Newberry.

Cultural references[edit]

The Miracle Mile is mentioned in the Billy Joel song "It's Still Rock and Roll to Me".
