The Macy's store moved to 34th Street and Herald Square in 1902.
Macy's store (as seen in the above picture) is nine stories high and has 33 elevators and four wooden escalators.
In 1924, Macy's Herald Square was declared the world's largest store.
The store has 800 locations across America.
Macy's sells a variety of products including clothing for both women and men, kids wear, toys, fashion accessories, shoes, perfumes, jewelry, watches, kitchen ware and NYIndia Home equipment.
Racial Profiling at Macy'sA few years back, Macy's faced charges from the New York state of racial profiling and illegal handcuffing of customers.
Blacks and Latino shoppers at Macy's stores were targeted by Macy's private police.
The company settled the case by paying a nominal fine of $600,000 and promised to implement changes in its security policies.
It's not known if Macy's has stopped its harsh racial profiling of Blacks and Latinos.
Macy's Thanksgiving ParadeMacy's is famous for the annual Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City it sponsors.
The department store also underwrites NYC's splendid Fourth of July fireworks display every year.
By the way, the Chinatown bus for Wilmington (DE) and Baltimore stops right outside Macy's on W34th St. If you see a large crowd in the evenings you can be sure it's mostly comprised of people waiting for the Chinatown bus to arrive.
