34th Street / Herald Square
You don’t need your NYPASS for Macy’s
You don’t need tickets for Macy’s

Although it is no longer the largest store in the world, it has lost none of its appeal. Macy’s is a great place to visit while in New York, and although obviously primarily a shopping destination it is an enjoyable attraction even if you don’t plan to disturb your wallet. They’ve pretty much got eveything in there. At times it feels like wandering around the Willy Wonka of department stores, and in truth it would take a mind of a similar tune to the famed chocolate magician that would create a shop in Manhattan which swallows up a whole block.

The wide range of brands and departments that Macy’s carries make it suitable for almost any budget and certainly any whim! They are famous for their reductions and massive sale rails so make sure you take the time to check them out if you are looking to go home with a bargain. Other than that, Macy’s is simply a place to enjoy whiling away an afternoon – take your time admiring the goods, savouring the service and enjoying the eating and drinking stops on your way round. Make sure you check out the famous wooden escalators… and just try not to get lost. Seriously.

Macy’s on TV / in the Movies: Macy’s has been featured most famously in Miracle on 34th Street, but also appeared in King Kong, Shark Tale, Ocean’s Eleven and numerous TV shows such as Ugly Betty, Seinfeld and of course Friends.

If you are visiting in November and will be going to the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade then usual common sense rules apply. It’s extremely popular so you’ll need to get there early, things start at around 9am but people will start arriving in the best spots from 6:30am so bear that in mind if you’re planning on just turning up and expecting a good view. Macy’s recommends the best viewing area as the area between 61st and 72nd Streets on Central Park West and as you might expect, it gets packed pretty quickly.

If you’ll be looking to eat during or shortly after the parade, you’ll probably want to make reservations as there are around 3 million people along the parade route all looking for a feed!

Parade Route
77th Street and Central Park West
South down Central Park West to Columbus Circle at 59th Street
East at Columbus Circle down Central Park South
South at 7th Avenue, all the way through Times Square until 42nd Street
At 42nd Street it turns East until 6th Ave
South on 6th Avenue to finish in front of Macy’s in Herald Square at 34th Street
