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

What a great Square at 36th and 6av. For shoppers, this is the place to be. You have it all in a small area; Macy`s, Victoria`s Secret, Zara, Levis, Manhattan Mall, JC Penney, Foot locker. You`ll need at least one day here.

Herald Square sits at the intersection of so many streets and avenues it'll make ones head spin. However, all that noise and bustle could take the bite out if a cold winter evening. I first visited in summer. When I went there in the middle if February snow, the frenetic pace of life on the square was heartwarming. There are... More

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

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

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
