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.

Great discount in purchacing branded products. Taste of New Yorker chic is attainable. The old escalator is somewhat fancy and unique experience: wooden steps!

Macy's is one of those places you just have to visit. Its just yet another memory borne out of watching movies and New York is the most famous city for that. Its just a regular department store but with the history.

I LOVE this Macy's. Its huge and has a huge selection on anything and everything. Every department you are guaranteed to find something. Better selection here than any Macy's I've been to. Be prepared for a huge crowd because it gets very crowded here.

I didn't use to like Macy's, I thought that the mens depapartments were good but for women mainly boring stuff. This time I checked in only beacuse we hade a delay in our flight and I was positively surprised. The whole store is undergoing some major changes. And from what I could see, all for the better. I will definetely... More

This is the store that sums New York up. It's huge, so much choice and variety, friendly and pretty good value, particularly clothes, jeans in particular. The fire work display that lite the skies for independence day came from Macy's roof showing how much a way of life Macy's is to New York. A must visit, just to walk through.

Macy's offer better selection and pricing for the sports wear, jeans and shoes than the outlets at New Jersey. I managed to get a number of items in Macy's at very reasonable price as compared to the outlets. Convenient situated.

Nice store (if shopping is your thing). Shopping is definitely my Wife's thing and she was on a mission to visit the Michael Kors concession to buy a handbag. Lots of staff generally standing around yet not very attentive. When my wife decided on a bag one of the chaps took it to the till. The young lady serving said,... More

If you love a good deal go to the fifth floor of Macy's ..you will find plenty! Loved the clothing, wish they had more registers open and fitting rooms. Be prepared to wait in line, however the lines move fairly fast. Loved the old escalators.....

They claim it to be the largest department store in the world and they are adding onto it. It is also a good place to take a break from shopping for a bite to eat. We enjoyed Stella 34 Trattoria for lunch there.

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.
