Gotham Hall is located just 2 blocks from Macy's. After a sumptuous breakfast buffet, just step outside right onto the 6th Avenue sidewalk to watch the balloons, bands and floats pass by you.
And Gotham Hall, a Designated New York City Landmark, is a venue like no other! Built originally as a bank in 1924 and more recently converted to a very upscale banquet facility, it's been the location for events featuring such dignitaries and celebrities as President Barack Obama, Elton John, Bradley Cooper, Martha Stewart, il Divo, Britany Spears, Steve Martin and Alicia Keys. In its seven-story gilded ballroom, you'll feel like a celebrity too as you're treated to fine food and, right outside the entrance, a fantastic view of the world's most famous parade!
