Macy’s Herald Square is one of the most iconic spots for New York City Shopping. This flagship store is easily recognizable – even to those who have never visited. This fact is thanks to the store’s many appearances in films including the classic Miracle on 34th Street.
Macy’s is also known for its association with the country’s most well-known parade: the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. For some families, this parade is as much a part of Thanksgiving Day as turkey and stuffing. While the movies and events might quickly come to mind when you think of Macy’s, it’s also a great place to do some New York City Shopping.
Keep in mind that this isn’t a store that you’ll want to just pop in and out of – especially if it’s your first visit. This spot for New York City Shopping boasts more than two million square feet of floor space and includes 10 floors. Macy’s opened in 1858, and was expanded until it became the largest store in the world. It held that title until 2009, when an even larger store was opened in Japan. Macy’s Herald Square covers an entire City block, and has something for every shopper.
The store is so large that it makes sense that some designers will have an entire area dedicated to their goods. Calvin Klein, Louis Vuitton, and many other well-known designers have their own areas within the store. Macy’s offers a good mix of designer clothes and accessories along with some more moderately-priced choices. Clothing and home goods aren’t all that you’ll find at this Macy’s. You can also visit Macy’s wig shop, bridal shop, nail salon, and even an art gallery.
All of that Shopping and browsing can make you hungry, so Macy’s houses several dining options. Whether you want to grab a slice of pizza or sit down to a delicious meal, you’ll find something to suit your craving.
Macy’s really shines during the holiday season when they deck out all 30 of their large windows. If you’ve never before seen the New York City holiday window displays then it is something that you can’t miss. Each year, the designers manage to come up with designs that are more spectacular than the year before. Be sure to take a look during your holiday stay at our Hotel in NYC.
Macy’s is more than just a place to do some New York City Shopping; it’s an Attraction in its own right. Learn about other can’t-miss Attractions in our New York City Attractions Guide.
