RECOMMENDED: 50 best New York attractions
It may not be as glamorous as New York’s other famous stores, but for sheer breadth of stock, the 34th Street behemoth is hard to beat. You won’t find exalted labels here, though—midpriced fashion and designers’ diffusion lines for all ages are its bread and butter, along with all the big beauty names. Fun fact: Herein lies the largest shoe department in the world (63,000 square feet, to be exact) so chances of leaving empty handed are slim. Brave the constant crowd to shop suede and lyrca over-the-knee boots by Kenneth Cole ($159) and equestrian-like rain wellies from Dirty Laundry ($59). While there’s no shortage of trendy options—given tables dedicated to Jessica Simpson, Charles David and Dolce Vita—eternally popular styles, like men’s Timberland roll tops ($120), are just as nice.
