Description: From its inception, Macy's Herald Square was a store unlike any other...
From its inception, Macy's Herald Square was a store unlike any other. Over the past 150 years, it has become a true New York City icon. Built in 1902, Macy's Herald Square was the first building to have the modern-day escalator, and it has continued to be a trendsetter. Today, "America's Largest Department Store" covers an entire city block with 11 levels of the latest fashions for you and your home. Macy's offers a full-service Visitor Center on the Mezzanine Level, plus restaurants throughout the store and exciting events almost every day.

I have been hearing about the flower show from my parents for years. I joined them this year with my two small children. I was expecting a lot more. it was pretty but I didn't think it was worth the trip from long island. Parents said it was much less ornate this year. It was pretty throughout and there were... More

Was there on a off peak period. Most consultants were there chatting,doing exercise. We have to approach them to get their assistance instead the other way round. The lady who helped me don't even know the product price.Service should brush up as their price are also increasing.

what a great place, something for absolutely everyone, great clothes at decent prices, no rubbish, no wading through lots of junk to get what you want. So much better than Bloomingdales

I loved Macy's - I went there every chance I could get in my 5 short days in NYC! I found Macy's heaps better than Bloomingdales. Went for a ride on the 100 yo wooden escalators and found myself in shopping heaven!!!

Best store in USA, you will find everything here. Quite full of people in the weekends, difficult to walk, to choose, to think... Macys New york is Not the best in the world because we still have Harrods in London and Galleries Lafayette in Paris! But it is a nice shopping experience...

If you are looking for clothes to buy the 9 floors on offer should provide you something that you like. The store is a little messy at the moment as they are having a revamp of some of the floors so it doesn't look as good as it normally does. The wooden escalators are really old and look good.

Plenty of character in this old shopping complex. A bit of a novelty to those who are used to the bright shiny modern mall complex. If you come from Downunder, reminiscent of the historic "DJ's" etc in major cities with wooden escalators. We did not have a lot of time here but I would come back.

It really is amazing. Its the best way to get through the overwhelming selections, because this store is HUGE. I needed a special occasion dress. "My stylist" was Susan, I talked to her ahead of time on the phone and gave her some thoughts of what I was looking for. She not only pulled clothes for me, she walked the... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
