Capitalizing on Macy's global appeal and New York City's vital tourism and shopping industry, Macy's and NYC & Company announce a first-ever collaboration to bring a world-class tourist experience to the world's largest store.

With the renovation, Macy's Visitor Center, located on the Mezzanine Level, has been re-imagined as a state-of-the-art space with dynamic Information Screens, Concierge Terminals, and Digital Touch Screen Kiosks that provide up-to-date information on: Attractions, Dining, and Nightlife among other areas of interest for tourists to explore throughout the five boroughs.
