Great to have a short stop

When you driving trough NYC by bike this place is a great stop. Not to crowded, nice things to see. Many places to grab a quick coffee or take some good lunch.

Herald Square has an interesting history and is an enjoyable part of Manhattan to visit. There are also several nice dining options here.

This place has a lot of history and plenty of seating options which is a great place to hang out and just chill. It is located right across the street near Macy's.

Need a break from your sight seeing or shopping. Get a coffee and take a seat in this small haven. There is seating amongst the green of this small garden. A pleasant interlude.

Between the DJ music coming out of H&M, the displays of Macy's and places to eat along the way I found this to be the perfect place just to hang out for a bit.

There used to be a beautiful building on the square, built by the publisher to house the "New York Herald". Two bits remain. When the New York Herald’s lease ended, its building’s ornate statues were removed and in 1940, when Herald Square underwent renovation, were given to the city and put on a pedestal in Herald Square. The centerpiece figure... More

This place is basically overlooked these days as traffic has been rerouted and large buildings have been put up and then renovated around it but it still remains an important spot in the history of the city. There is a lovely small park with historic markers here and as a New Yorker I like to visit historic sites. With no... More

It is always crowded and full of life in Herald Square. The main "attraction" is Macy's Department Store which is huge and diverse. On special holidays Macy's presents its' beautifully decorated windows. If you are a tourist and you plan on shopping at Macy's - go first to the Visitor Center (1st floor) and get your visitor discount card. Other... More

So much history, shopping (Macy's ) and food offerings can be found in this area of NYC. The recent introduction of outdoor seating has finally made this a great place to visit.

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.
