    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!

    Despite being at a major intersection by Macy's and very busy, there is a surprisingly relaxed atmosphere in Herald Square.

    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.

    Not really somewhere to make a point of visiting, but very pleasant to stop for a quick coffee and sit in the sun watching all the happenings
  • Rugi (Sebnem Shirley Arslan)
    Just grab your lunch and have a seat in the middle of the square,enjoy waching the city feel which is my fave of all times...:)

    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.)

    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
