To the left of Times Squarelies another famous New York hub: Herald Square.
While many associate Herald Square as home of the world’s largest department store – Macy’s – those who live here know it as so much more. Sure, a department store with over 2 million square-feet of shopping space is impressive, but living in Herald Square has its other perks as well.
Convenience & Cash
Herald Square is not typically thought of as a residential area. Many associate the area with being a tourist trap, as it’s the focal point of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. However, living here means a cheaper-than-average rent compared to many other areas of New York. You are also in walking distance of many stores and restaurants, meaning a quick meal or new wardrobe are only a few steps away. Plus, the money you save on rent leads to more nights out, or a fatter savings account.
If you are a huge fan of the Thanksgiving and Holiday seasons, then Herald Square is a dream come true. Beautiful window displays, massive decorations, holiday sales, and more are just a few of the perks of living here. Of course, the Macy’s Parade runs right through the square on Thanksgiving, so you will be front-and-center for all of the festivities.
Lack of Traffic
When you think of New York City, one of your first thoughts is most likely of a traffic-packed street. One of the reason’s Herald Square is so unique is because the blocks between 33rdand 35thhave been blocked-off from traffic. This means the only congestion you will have to deal with on these blocks are slow-moving pedestrians—which are few and far between in the Big Apple!
