About fifteen miles east of New York, past the Great Neck exit on the Long Island Expressway, sits the Americana Manhasset shopping center. In a town where the median household income ticks just shy of $200,000, and sprawling estates and gated communities are commonplace, you'd surely expect some high-end shopping. And while the usual key players are all here—your Gucci, Louis, Fendi and Cartiers of the world—Hirshleifers, the crown jewel of the complex, is anything but expected.
