The biggest department store in the United States sits majestically on West 34th Street in Herald Square, and given its 10 floors and more than 1 million square feet of space, you might want to set aside a few hours to explore the grandiose retail spectacle. Thousands of tourists and locals pass through its revolving doors daily to peruse and purchase from the store's seemingly endless selection of clothing, cosmetics, housewares, furniture and more. Macy's is also known for its beloved Thanksgiving Day Parade, which fills the City's streets with an audience of more than 3 million people, while over 20 million watch the star-studded procession at home.
