Department Store in Midtown

Blockbuster Bloomie’s is something like the Metropolitan Museum of Art of the shopping world – historic, sprawling, overwhelming and packed with bodies, but you’d be sorry to miss it. Raid the racks for clothes and shoes from a who’s who of US and global designers, including many ‘new-blood’ collections. Refueling pit stops include a branch of cupcake heaven Magnolia Bakery.
