Neiman Marcus at Roosevelt Field: Sneak peek at Long Island's newest department store

Hail Neiman Marcus, the more than 100,000-square-foot temple of luxury opening its swanky doors at Roosevelt Field in Garden City on Feb. 19. The wow factor is off the charts...here are a few of our favorite things.

For the man who has everything, and we do mean everything, there's always Stefano Ricci's croc jacket, a mere $120,000. It's the only one in the U.S. at the moment, though of course they'll be happy to take orders.

The Memory Mirror

The Memory Mirror: It’s not, as they say,

It'’s not, as they say, your mother’'s mirror. It'’s a new technology that allows shoppers to get the w-h-o-l-e story, as in being able to see their outfits in a 360-degree view and compare clothing options side by side. Added bonus? Actually a giant video screen and camera, the mirror records an eight-second video that can be password-protected and emailed to friends and family. So those questions such as "How do I look in this?," can be answered by email recipients or, better still, the mirror itself. We LOVE it.
