    Macy’s Department Store is a New York institution, and the Black Friday sale provided a good incentive to check it out, and buy some greatly reduced clothes for our grandchildren. The wooden elevators were an unexpected treat.

    Saks Fifth Avenue is the flagship store for the Saks group. Located opposite the Rockefeller Centre and Saint Patricks it truly is a great location.

    As an avid watcher of the TV show Friends I remember one of the characters working at Bloomingdales. As a result during my visit to New York City I wanted to check it out.

    It's a very classy store and the things they sell there are WAY OUT of my price range.

    That said the staff I spoke to were very friendly and polite and not condescending in any way which was good.

    Worth checking out to say you have been there.

    Located just off union Square this is an interesting and sizeable shop. The name doesn’t really do it justice as I was expecting something more of lower end.

    I've been to Barney's uptown many times, and I always find it a little uppity. I finally got to explore the one downtown this weekend. It was not only really cool, but I found the service chill and relaxed. I didn't feel uncomfortable while browsing. People were really nice. The clothes are really cutting-edge with lots of up and coming designers. It's more downtown and less suits. Pretty cool here. Love the accessories departments.They have a cool basement cosmetics department too. Check it out if you're in Chelsea or the Village

    BG is always fun to visit. Start at the top if you have never been there. You will be astounded by the home decor and accessories department. Look for the bunny plates and napkins and china. Fun! The staff in all departments is first rate and never stuffy. Just helpful and they love to chat when not too busy.

    This store is very large and has multiple stories. There is an escalator to bring you up and down, and the layout is kind of like a maze. It’s very hard to navigate and the signage doesn’t help much. The outside of the building is iconic, so hopefully H&M never goes out of business!

    Excellent store with some bargains though the exchange rate with euro is not favourable at present. Plenty to see and choose from.

    We stocked up on decorations, authentic silk attire and a dragon head for our Chinese New Year party. The store is filled with beautiful items.

    I like this salon! I came to the store after finding the salon on Instagram. I recommend it! Girls awesome and quality of hair really cool. I spend good time and have volume extensions, like my nature hair🥳

    Awesome art gallery to explore different exhibits featuring artists specializing in clothing, accessories, skin products and other start ups. They feature a slide, coffee bar and they have interactive exhibits when you wave your want at particular stations. Highly recommend this gallery if you want to do some shopping, check out pop up shops and fill your IG feed with art. The pop ups and exhibit change so I'll definitely be back. Fun place to check out with some friends and no reservations required at this time

    Everything is under $5 dollars which is a great deal but surprisingly organized compared to other dollar stores.

    There are lots of hidden gems in the store for example we found a cushion bench today, of course $5 each, which might be sold for more than $10 on Amazon.

    The staff were amazing and very helpful. The streetwear stye products are amazing but are pricey...as was expected. On the downside was the security guard who actually expected us to leave our shopping bags (clearly identified as from luxury stores) on the floor next to the front door where any of the other customers could have picked them up on the way out. One of us decided to remain behind rather than shop. Surely there is a better security procedure.
