Macy's was the main reason of visiting here. Nice and small. Other good shops here too, basically for shopaholics.

I can't see how this can be called a park it's more like a court yard. There's stalls and food booths if you are hungry. Whilst we were there there were always protesters outside of Macy's. Don't let them put you off though I think they are just there cus they know everybody goes to Macy's on a trip to... More

Herald Square, now Herald Square Park is the defunct New York Herald tribune that was once published newspapers directly to its north. The park is right outside Macy’s, the world’s largest department store and is a great place to look at the Empire State Building while having a Sabrett (hot dog) or hot pretzel. This is just a cool one... More

This place is a good break on your way to do a lot more in new york city. You can take great pictures of landmarks surrounding this park and the shopping is second to none.

Quaint park next to Macy's. Lovely tables and chairs to take in the sights. Also close to clean public bathrooms and multiple vendors.

Park your weary bones here after shopping at Macy's or the nearby shops or sightseenig. Conveniently located after you are done with your deals at the surrounding shops. A part of the avenue beside Macy's is a pedestrian only space, adjacent to the square itself, where table and chairs are laid out. There are some food carts nearby so one... More

Herald Square beguiles passers by each December with holiday scenes in their department store windows. Other times on the year the windows show sleek fashions. Macy's flagship store has done so for more than 100 years. Shoppers still go up and down the historic wooden escalators. Saks Fifth Avenue shoe department, a footwear empire so vast it boasts its own... More

Need to stop while you shop and get in a little park peace? That's the little Herald Square Park right out the door from Macy's 34th Street. Benches, trees and flowers in season. The birds are hoping you drop a crumb from your muffin. So fun to sit and watch the world go by in the midst of the city.... More

It was close to Hotel Metro, busy shopping area but space to walk and sit down as well. Good focal point to get our bearings.
