Very large flagship location for a high-end department store, with a labyrinthine layout, that is sure to have you walking in circles, but in a good way. The sales staff is nice, there a quite a few dining establishments, and the store is divided into sections by brand or apparel that have separate identities to break up the monotony. Overall, it's nice, but generally avoided unless there's a seasonal sale or promotion - it's sort of nice, but not nice enough to compete with ultra-high end boutique department stores, and too-nice to compete with bottom of the barrel discounters. But, like any department store that has in-store dining and alcohol - shop carefully, and have fun.


We are quite lucky to have Bloomingdale’s flagship store right in midtown Manhattan. They say, “It’s like no other store in the world.” And you know what? They are right! If you are looking for a high-end department store but can’t afford Saks Fifth Avenue or Bergdorf Goodman, then take a wander into Bloomie’s. They’ve got it all here, clothes for women, men and children. Home goods, shoes, accessories and beauty products. Not to mention many high-end designers such as Burberry, Theory, and Michael Kors. If you are in need of good energy while shopping, you can dine at three restaurants in Bloomingdale’s.


Bloomingdale's caters to most customers in the neighborhood, with high and low end options to choose from. The shoe department is pretty expansive, and if you're looking for a little black dress - you could spend all day perusing the choices. Customer service is excellent in most departments, but be prepared to be ignored around the holidays.

Whether you're visiting New York for the first time or have lived here your entire life, Bloomingdale's 59th Street is an NYC institution that everyone has to visit. While other flashier department stores and boutiques may have overtaken Bloomie's in some ways, this is a New York icon. Best part? Forty Carrots yogurt. It's tucked way back at the bedding section—make sure you go and get a plain with walnuts. To die for.
