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.

Our hotel is at Herald Square. Except for Macy's , there are lots of souvenir stores and bead stores. It is on the border of Koreatown so lots of Korean restaurants.

Despite being at a major intersection by Macy's and very busy, there was a surprisingly relaxed atmosphere in Herald Square. When we visited (April 2014) there were lots of containers planted with spring flowers which looked lovely. Not really somewhere to make a point of visiting, but very pleasant to stop for a quick coffee and sit in the sun... More

Spent the day in NYC with my three kids...decided to take the subway from Central Park area to Herald square so glad we did. Very nice part of town, Macy's store was busy and exciting. Plenty of things to see especially people watch. I highly recommend eating at the Waffles and Dinges stand across from Macy's. Best money I ever... More

Situated at the intersection of Broadway and Avenue of Americas, the park gives an opportunity to sit back and relax amidst the madness of Manhattan. If you are shopping on broadway and enjoy street food, best way is to grab some fast food, a cup of coffee and sit here and witness the surroundings. Though this idea will only suitable... More
