City Smart: New York


No need to enter the newest (and the world’s largest) H&M location into Google Maps. You can see the international cheapskate haven’s glaring red logo for miles, as it towers amongst the skyline’s famous skyscrapers. It resides on Herald Square at a staggering 63,000 square feet. The iconic Macy’s may have lost their spot as the biggest on the block, but they are no underdog. In September, the department store became the latest to create a discount offshoot, Macy’s Backstage. The brand already has a lively Instagram feed and six different locations throughout New York and New Jersey. Before you book your train ticket and hotel, can we add one more thing? You can now shop the awesomely trendy jewelry selection of BaubleBar in person. The online jewelry startup opened the doors of its first brick-and-mortar store on Long Island this past summer. h&,,
