Every New York fashionista knows the "4 B's Designer Shopping": Bloomie's, Bergdorf's, Bendel's and Barneys. Since 1872, when Benjamin Bloomingdale's sons started selling ladies hoop skirts on the Lower East Side, Bloomingdale's has been a shopping mecca and a trendsetter in the retail industry.

In 1886, the department store moved to its current home on Lexington Avenue and the Bloomingdale brothers developed the much loved pastime of window shopping by being the first store to create a theatrical mise-en-scene featuring a few select products in the plate glass display windows. Bloomingdale's has continued to capitalize on its relationship with the affluent, young and trendy through theatrical advertising campaigns billing Bloomie's a store that had to be experienced, a place to see and be seen.

Personal shoppers and interior designers are available by appointment to help you fill your iconic Big Brown Bag to the brim with the latest in fashions for you and your home. On the first floor balcony, Bloomingdale's Visitor Service offers translators, coat and package check services, hotel package delivery (minimum purchase $250) and a full concierge service. International visitors are eligible to receive free signature gift when they spend $200 or more by presenting a same day receipt to the Visitor Services desk.

Nearby attractions: Central Park, Central Park Wildlife Center, St. Patrick's Cathedral and the Museum of Modern Art.

1 Star Rating I ordered a Lafayette shirt (cost over $400) online. The one they shipped to me was so wrinkly that it looked like it's been worn. Read More
