Macy’s Considers Building Park On Roof Of Herald Square Store

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Macy’s is considering an unusual addition to its flagship store in Herald Square.

The department store chain is looking into turning the more than 2-million square foot roof into a public park.

It would feature open green space with trees and benches along with restaurants.

The rooftop park would be part of a strategy to attract more shoppers and make Macy’s more exciting.

In January, Macy’s announced it would be closing 68 stores and eliminating more than 10,000 jobs by midyear.
