Situated along 34th Street at the intersection of Broadway and Sixth Avenue, also known as the Avenue of the Americas, Herald Square is a destination for tourists as well as New York City professionals. Aside from the many shopping options in the area, Herald Square’s buildings offer a wide range of office spaces for lease.
Draw Upon the Foot Traffic of this Retail Mecca
Herald Square draws a great amount of foot traffic, with an estimated 100 million visitors per year. Macy’s is the most famous tenant on the square, which serves as the terminus for the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Another major retail presence in the area is the Manhattan Mall, anchored by J. C. Penney. Many other small boutiques and larger stores populate the area, including H&M, Sephora, and Forever 21.
Rent Loft-Like Office Space Within Former Factories
Like the buildings of the neighboring Garment District, Herald Square’s buildings are often light-industrial and commercial in character. Their loft-like interiors, with high ceilings and large windows, draw many fashion designers and merchandizers. However, Herald Square is also home to many companies that aren’t in the fashion industry, including those in creative fields such as advertising and graphic design, as well as technology, law and financial firms. All types of businesses benefit from such flexible and open layouts, as well as the convenience of many transportation options nearby.
Benefit from a Business Improvement District
Herald Square is located within a Business Improvement District (BID) that is operated by the 34th Street Partnership. The BID provides a variety of services, including sanitary pickup, security and maintenance of the landscaping elements. They are also responsible for the placing the tables and chairs that dot the square. Like Bryant Park, Herald Square also contains a food kiosk that is operated by Tom Colicchio’s ‘wichcraft. There are also free toilet facilities. A portion of Broadway between 33rd and 35th Streets was closed to vehicular traffic in order to provide more space for pedestrians. This effectively doubled the areas of Herald and Greeley Squares.
Take Advantage of the Multitude of Transportation Options in Herald Square
Many major subway lines stop beneath or near Herald Square. The 34th Street/Herald Square station is served by the B, D, F, M, N, Q and R trains. The PATH train provides service to New Jersey from its 33rd Street Station. Penn Station also provides access to the 1, 2, and 3 trains as well as Amtrak train service for commuters.
