NYC Shopping

When it comes to world-class shopping, there are few places that rival Madison and Fifth Avenues. Luxury shops line the streets, including the flagship stores of distinguished brands. But there are plenty of stylish deals and unique finds to be discovered in the area, too.


Opened in 1886, the flagship Midtown East location of this famed upscale department store is a veritable New York City icon. The cavernous, block-long space sells everything from homewares by Ralph Lauren and Sparrow & Wren to beauty products from Chanel and MAC and designer clothing from the likes of Gucci and Vera Wang. There’s a free Bloomingdale’s app to help you navigate the racks, but you can also work with personal shoppers found on the first floor. And should you find yourself with an appetite while shopping, head to the on-premise Forty Carrots restaurant for healthy fare or Magnolia for the famous New York banana pudding.
