Just walked through it and in all honesty it is full of homeless beggars. Not their fault they are there but the area is dirty and gives an unsafe feel

A great spot to have a little break and enjoy some coffee or water depending on the day and people watch.

Nice little square to relax for a second and enjoy the beautiful flowers and to people watch. Close to Macys and other shopping plus many restaurants.

Nice table and chairs in a garden area. There was a hard working janitor keeping the place clean. Today, he was scrubbing the sidewalk. It's the perfect place to bring your coffee and newspaper and do some people watching. There is a bathroom available.

I was staying around this area and unfortunately it wasn't until my last couple of days I made it here. It's a great area for shopping. Not just the Macys the entire area. Would recommend it and the Victoria's Secret Flagship store is a must for the ladies

Main attraction here is to observe people going about their daily business. Situated between Macy's and the flagship Victoria's Secret shop there's not that much in the square itself. A quick stop is sufficient.

We stayed at the Hampton Inn last weekend which is located right o Herald Square and loved that area. The Square is not as big as others in NYC but its got plenty to do, eat and shop. There was even a little market there where you can try various foods and drinks. I also loved the view of the... More

I come to Herald Square, but it's always a little too crowded for me. This Macy's is too big for me as well although I like to see their holiday windows at Christmas time.

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.
