From its inception, Macy's Herald Square was a store unlike any other. Over the past 150 years, it has become a true New York City icon. Built in 1902, Macy's Herald Square was the first building to have the modern-day escalator, and it has continued to be a trendsetter. Today, "America's Largest Department Store" covers an entire city block with 11 levels of the latest fashions for you and your home. Macy's offers a full-service Visitor Center on the Mezzanine Level, plus restaurants throughout the store and exciting events almost every day.

A welcome sight from the grey outside! Beautiful flower arrangements amongst the fabulous variety of apparel and almost anything you could wish to buy! Try going during the week, as it can get very busy during the weekend.

It is a dream for shopoholics but if you are like myself who wants to go in and out then do your research first. Got caught out as they didn't stock an item i wanted.

After reading so many books and few online buys my list in New York included Macy's in capital letter. What I love about this place is it has everything also at the same time few really good discounts so instead of going here and there invest your time at one place and shop as much as u want

Macy's is huge. Give herself plenty of time to look around this store. There are great stores all around Macy's and don't miss the Empire State Building, which is right there.

This store is an entire city block and 9 stories high. I was like a kid in a candy store! Lots of high end stuff plus great sale items! Wish I could have spent more than 2 hours!

You have to make sure and check out May's. It is the worlds largest department store. The outside of the store is massive and iconic. Then you want into the store and all the different levels for your shopping enjoyment. They carry a great selection of merchandise. I could have shopped for hours but we were on a tight schedule....

Got caught in a blizzard today and as we are only staying a couple of blocks away, we went to Macy's department store. I ended up re-kitting myself and my partner out with lovely designer clothes at very realistic prices. They also gave an extra 10% discount because we are visitors to the country. It was a pleasure to be... More

Don't know what we were expecting but this is just a department store, nothing special about it, the layout is weird (for example, men's underwear and belts are on ground floor, shirts on the 2nd, ties on 5th and clothing on 7th etc etc) this example is not actually where they are but it's like this throughout. Everything seems a... More

Ok so first of all this is a massive store with many different designer labels for both males and females and a huge range of reasonably priced clothing that is much cheaper than the UK. It is worth spending a couple of hours at least just wandering around. Now I've been in Macy's in the Florida Mall, Orlando and found... More

We were going to spend a couple of hours browsing but ended up spending nearly a whole day, the size and scope is amazing with so many brands to choose from. The layout can be a bit confusing but it is an amazing place to visit.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood 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 heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the 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.
