Wanted to buy some Waterford crystal as a gift for our niece who lives in USA and we were visiting her next day. Couldn't find glassware department so asked lift attendant who looked at us as if we were aliens and said 'other side of makeup'! Found glass dept. Nobody around to ask. Found what we wanted. Assistant arrived, ignored... More

This store is soooooo big. I only went to get a gown for a Gala event but also came out with some great Ray Ban sunglasses. So many options. No way you can see the whole store

This Macys is huge! Eight floors of anything and everything. They even have places to eat inside the store. During the holiday season the decorations are beautiful! The only problem is that it's always super crowded with tourists.

Macy's is, for me, a shrine to all that is good in fashion. The staff are friendly and helpful, the selection is excellent, they always have a sale on. They have an entire floor of lady's shoes!!! They give you a map for the 8 floors when you enter the building!! I needed more time, just another reason to return... More

What a place - everything a woman could need under one roof. Visited the store for shoes - well there was a special offer on buy 3 pairs of shoes and get 40% off meant that I had an excuse for not having to choose !

I could have stayed in this eutopia for a week. So little time when on a first visit to the Big Apple! I received great customer service and would have loved to have completed my "I need!" list. Do not go to New York with the idea of cheap crap. Really don't know where some folks got that idea? Quality... More

The world's largest store, bar none, and a must go to visit while in the Big Apple awaits all that enter. First floor is a cologne and perfume megastore while treasure awaits on the other. NYC Gear is in the basement - reasonably priced and nice souvenir selection. If you register on the balcony of the first floor at the... More

Macy's is a must see, even if not to shop but to see the famous Macy's in New York. Taking up one full block, the store itself is designed so that you will find everything and anything you want. Bonus - They offer free wifi and charging ports.

Just the same as the department stores you find in Oxford Street, London, or any other major city for that matter. Yes it is big and glitzy inside but it is very crowded and the layout doesn’t seem very logical so it was hard to find things. Nice café though. Shop staff not very helpful. Only purchase was a $5...

Most Macys stores are more or less the same. This one is bigger and older and more famous. But the real surprise is on the lower level - a full service pub!! I hit it at happy hour, and had a nice dinner (not really cheap though). Shopping was never so much fun.
