The store’s 10 floors take up an entire city block and many visitors spend an entire day exploring the offerings. If you get hungry during your visit you can enjoy a bite to eat in of the 5 Restaurants found inside Macy’s. Macy’s does a brisk business today, but the store has rather humble beginnings. On the day it opened in 1858 the store did just over $11 in sales. Macy’s had a few owners before it was purchased by Isidor Strauss in 1895. Strauss moved Macy’s to where it sits today and built it into the world’s largest store – a title Macy’s kept until 2009. So, yes, Macy’s is a great place to do some Shopping in New York City, but it is also a NYC Attraction in its own right. In fact, it is the 3rd most popular Attraction in the city. Macy’s has built its reputation not just through its stores, but also through the many Events it sponsors each year. The Macy’s Fourth of July Fireworks and the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade are annual Events that are enjoyed by millions of people around the world who watch on TV . These Events have helped to cement Macy’s place not just as an American retailer but as an American icon. The holiday windows at Macy’s are another feature of this store that draws visitors. The windows are decked out with amazing and beautiful displays throughout the holiday season. This adds fun for those doing some Shopping in New York, but many come just to see the window displays.
The next time you’re staying at a New York Hotel, be sure to visit Macy’s to do some Shopping in New York and, perhaps, to see a Macy’s sponsored Event.
