Nice stop for a relaxing break. Love this city. So many things to do. Suggest you stay for a few days to see the little gems like the square

Unlike some other reviewers, I found this a delightful quiet area surrounded by the usual mayhem of New York traffic and pedestrian bustle. It is a shaded spot among trees - not exactly common in the heart of Manhattan. I didn't see any litter and the tables and chairs were clean and a welcome respite. Probably not worth seeking out...

Quite simply this is one of the most disgusting places in new york city. There was rubbish everywhere that seemed unattended to for several days and with no action to have it removed. The chairs and tables are in disarray having us wonder what they are there for since they seemed to be unkept. I cant believe this is just... More

This was the first time I actually spent time here. It was a beautiful day. Not to crowded and plenty of chairs. The bells going off was an added treat. I really enjoyed the beauty.

It is full of tourists, mainly on the way to Macys which is outside it. We were lucky to find a table, and sat down to have a snack and drink before we entered Macys. There was people watching and even some music.

Herald Square is awful. It's always jam packed with aggressive tourists. The streets and sidewalk dirty. None of the nearby shops or eating establishments are worth your time, unless you want a quick, greasy bite. Avoid it if you can!

Herald Square is where Broadway intersects with Sixth Avenue. It has been synonymous with clothes shopping forever due to the fact that Macy's Department Store's flagship is right there, facing onto the square. And of course many other big national chains like H&M and Victoria's Secret also have stores there too. But the thing that draws me to Herald Square... More

If the weather is nice this is a great area to sit back and people watch. Go to Pax deli and get take out coffee and cupcakes and enjoy watching the shoppers. Then head into Macys for retail therapy.

Loved the remodeling of the Victoria's Secret store. Beautiful! This store has everything. The decor is like no other. At least three floors and lots of helpful staff. They have items that alot of stores don't offer. LOVED IT!
