Photographer's Note

Every spring there's a large flower show at the famed Macy's department store. Both the windows and the store interior are filled with flowers of every type in various displays. It's a popular event, and it seems that even the Empire State Building wanted to get a peak inside one of the store windows. :-)

The flagship store of Macy's is located in Herald Square, at West 34th Street and Broadway. It has been in the same location since 1901, although the original Macy's was founded in lower Manhattan in 1858.

The Herald Square location is one of the largest department stores in the world, with 2.2 million square feet (205,000 square meters), on several floors. The building itself is a National Historic Landmark.

Macy's was founded by Rowland Hussey Macy, and currently has 793 locations in the United States. It's also well-known for the annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, which is staffed by volunteer employees from the store.

In the WS is a view from the main floor.
