“Go there and marvel, but don't buy anything”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

A department store is really worth a visit. There are bags that cost as much as a larger car, dresses that fit the museum and sassy ladies who look like parody of the American and Russian upper class.

The staff is anything but cordial and happy to talk crap about the customers who just buy from them. An old lady bought a Chanel bag while I was inside the store, after she passed the staff started imitating her and spew bile. Unbelievable.

“This one of New York City's landmark department stores.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013 via mobile

This one of New York City's landmark department stores. This is truly a high end store for the more affluent. It includes all fashion icons like Gucci Prada Chanel and more. It's great place to go and a good chance you will see a celebrity shopping.

“Expensive to shop in but free to browse through”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

And what a thrilling browse it is. Bergdorf Goodman's store is located near Central Park. Steeped in history, the story caters to a very rich (and quite exclusive) clientel. Their windows are historic but it is the architecture of the store that is not only the real star but at times takes the thunder away from the high priced fashions offered. BG's was used in Barbra Streisand's first television special for the Poor Little Rich Girl backdrop. It is as lovely now as it was then and worth a walk-through.

“Nice store, worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013 via mobile

This store is beautiful and the staff are somewhat friendly. The layout of the store is a logistical nightmare as goods are scattered about various floors.
