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.

We browsed about Macy's one morning and were blown away by the sheer volume of departments/brands within. Just like NYC for anyone who's not quite prepared for what to expect, Macy's fits into this overwhelming metropolis aptly. I love how there are multiple eateries dotted about the levels without that horrendous food-court-nightmare feel about them. With no disrespect to the... More

A huge store of seven floors with sections for Men, Women and kids. It is supposed to be the biggest store in the world. The prices are not cheap but the range you get is excellent. We could spend only an hour but worth visiting.

I placed an order, Macys charged my account and sent me an email confirmation. Then minutes later, I get another email saying the order was cancelled and I need to call customer support. I called three times, the line kept getting disconnected, and the last call I was on hold for over 20 minutes!!! Thankfully the funds have been returned... More

If you have a few hours to kill, you can definitely spend them here. Floor after floor of shopping shopping shopping. It's often crowded, but this older store can handle it. Get here at Christmas so you can see the decorations and Christmas Land!

Had to do this after a lifetime of hearing about it. Big, overwhelming, and over the top. Some good bargains to be had. However, this format is a little tired, and looking forward to the next evolution.

This is the Mother Ship of the Macy's chain. I was lucky to hit some special sales and got some good items at bargain prices. The clerks are very helpful.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
