   Macy’s Herald Square was around since 1902 and is considered one of the city’s famous landmark shopping department stores as well as
the world’s largest department store. Macy’s Herald Square has 10 floors of shopping pleasure with several places to stop and dine at including a McDonalds on the 7th floor, Jimmy’s Pizza on the fourth floor, Au Bon Pain on the 1st and 8th floors, Cellar Bar & Grill on the cellar level, and an ice cream and pretzels option on the 4th floor. The store is massive and they offer a great visitors guide brochure at the entrance which tells you where everything is located from the restaurants, merchandise, to the restrooms. Several escalators and elevators are located throughout keeping the crowds flowing from floor to floor. The store is a popular tourist attraction and even has the original wood escalators. In the Springtime, the store is filled with hundreds of flowers for a two-week flower event that begins on Palm Sunday. At Christmastime, the store becomes a winter wonderland of decorations from the famed window displays to festive poinsettas everywhere. They even have the Times Square New Year’s Ball on display for a limited time.
   Macy’s Herald Square is located on a complete city block with several entrances to the landmark department store. The landmark store is between 34th and 35th Street.
