Macy's Manhattan

Macy's was founded by Rowland Hussey Macy, who between 1843 and 1855 opened four retail dry goods stores, including the original Macy's store in downtown Haverhill, Massachusetts, established in 1851 to serve the mill industry employees of the area. They all failed, but he learned from his mistakes. Macy moved to New York City in 1858 and established a new store named "R.H Macy Dry Goods" on Sixth Avenue between 13th and 14th Streets, which was far north of where other dry goods stores were at the time.[4] On the company's first day of business on October 28, 1858 sales totaled US$11.08, equal to $279.82 today. From the very beginning, Macy's logo has included a star in one form or another, which comes from a tattoo that Macy got as a teenager when he worked on a Nantucket whaling ship.[5]

Shopping is akin to a national sport in the United States, and nowhere is it more practiced than in New York. If you are on holiday in the city and don't have so much time to kill, then one of the famous department stores is probably the best option, where you'll find almost everything you can think of under one roof. With over 2,000,000ft² of retail space, it claims to be the 'World's Largest Store'. Macy's was the first American store to install escalators, which are the same ones that remain today.
