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.

Macy's

Biggest Macy's ever! Make sure you find the original wooden escalators around floor 3. Very much worth the trip just to ride those. It is like a mall in one store.

This is one of our last shopping stops of our vacation, and man do I wish I had spent less time on 5th and 50th/51st! This Macy's is of course the largest in the world. It is like 11 floors including the basement. It's like a mall inside Macy's and then there are a million shops for teens and everyone... More

Visited recently on our trip to NYC and after listening to all the hype about Macys we had high hopes that we would have a lovely shopping experience. My wife was looking for an extra special dress for a wedding we are going to in November and was desperate to find something that she could buy. We found the store... More

Always hit Macy's when in New York and never disappointed as it's a great store. This time I hit on a one day sale in the men's department with 70% off many items. Only one suitcase as was flying back to London that night so had to pass on so much. But fun just looking around.

A fun afternoon. An exuberant atmosphere... A disc jockey, people dancing and American flags. Good bargains. At the Clinique counter upstairs Bettina was great. She was painstaking in helping me chose the right colours and in explaining the differences between the products. She wouldn't let me tip her. She was very professional and fun. But the ladies' bathrooms... Macy's should... 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.
