    Herald Square is a great place to sit, grab a cold water and take in the sights. We stopped in to Macy's-the largest department store in the world! Don't forget to stop in!

    Where to find a shady spot to sit on 34th Street. Get great coffee at the 'wichcraft kiosk and hit up their happy hour coffee & tea specials (1/2 off every day 3-6pm). (via Scoville) Read more

    Outdoor bistro tables, by-the-hour bike rental stations, and gourmet coffee stands make people-watching the sport of choice at this multi-block streetfront gathering spot.

    So close to everything! Subway, shopping (Macy's and so much more), Koreatown, etc. They have a great outdoors food court during the summer worth checking out.

    The statue of the two men and the bell rings on the hour (at least it did at 8pm). The men hit the bell. Its pretty cool.

    at night, look up at bennett monument: the eyes of two bronze owls at the top glow eerie green every second or so. "la nuit porte conseil." (the night brings counsel.)

    This park is so dope! Clean, big, great view. So many other stores around there as well!!

    Skip the food carts. The person handling your food is also handling the money, and we all know how dirty money can be.

    It's better now that they've created more pedestrian space but generally packed with tourists.
    Sara T. · March 29
  • Ben L.
    Busy. Lots to look at. Much better since they shut down the traffic and made it a pedestrian walkway.

    Area with TONS of tourists, but probably because of the awesome area for shopping.

    Great shopping mecca, but also a wonderful haven in the midst of the city!

    Never sit in the park area near the statues on hot days. Your sitting above the subway's exhaust grill

    DON'T feed the pigeons in the park, if you do you and everyone around you will be surrounded by hostile birds.

    Try (not?) to photo bomb all the selfies. Errrybody wants their mug with the Empire State behind them.

    Tourist central, but a great selection of national chain shops.

    The monument clock moves at the hour. And the owls eyes light up at night.

    The people watching is off the charts here. Mostly confused tourists getting ripped off. Fun.

    If you see a table, grab it. They're hard to come by.

    Home to Macy's, this is where the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade ends every year.

    Not in a rush? Find someone larger than you to draft behind.

    Nice place to have your breakfast or lunch.

    It's just way too crowded. It's the WORST if you're actually trying to do any shopping.
