Bloomingdale's began in 1972 when brothers Joseph and Lyman Bloomingdale opened the first store in New York City. Bloomingdale's has become a leader in fashion, a reputation stemming from their work with up-and-coming designers of the time such as Ralph Lauren, Perry Ellis, and Norma Kamali. Bloomingdale's now has stores all over the United States, but you'll still find their first store on 59th Street and Lexington Avenue.

Navigating the store – To avoid getting lost in the store, Bloomingdale’s created their own free iPhone/Android app. It contains maps, information on restaurants, and even gives access to special offers and store events. If you’ll be shopping for a while, take advantage of the baggage check/coat check.
When to go – Weekdays before lunch are the least crowded times to visit. During the holiday season, the store is more crowded than usual, so be patient!
Shopping bags – Ask the cashier if you would like to have your purchases shipped home.
In between shopping, enjoy the many great dining options at Bloomingdale's. Magnolia Bakery is a New York staple and you'll often find ques lined up to try their cupcakes. Or try frozen yogurt (now an American classic dessert) if you're beating the heat. Go to Le Train Blue for a french savory meal or Flip if you want something more wholesome.
