New York City Shopping in a Wheelchair

New York City has some of the best shopping in the world. Why not visit all of your favorite stores in one day? Be escorted around the city and peruse all of the incredible windows without having to worry about carrying your bags. Here are some of the best places to shop that are also wheelchair accessible: 

Macy's Herald Square


Macy’s Herald Square


151 W 34th Street
Entrance: Northwestern entrance at 34th Street

Elevator: Yes

Built in 1902, the original Macy’s was the first building to have a modern-day escalator and is wheelchair accessible (though the elevators have since been remodeled), so you can access all eleven floors of shopping at this stunning department store. Upon arrival, you’ll immediately be inundated with greeters from the perfume and cologne department as you make your way past fragrances, cosmetics, and women’s handbags. Coined “America’s Largest Department Store,” Macy’s takes up a city block and has an entire floor dedicated to shoes, a full-service Visitor’s Center, and restaurants throughout the store.

This enormous flagship store has three floors of cashmere, HeatTech apparel, and stylish but affordable attire. More importantly, they have stunning glass elevators, so you can move comfortably between each level. They also have excellent basics, such as wool socks, undershirts, button down shirts, etc., and more elaborate collections, such as their featured collaborations with artists like Yayoi Kusama, who are also presented at the nearby Museum of Modern Art. Plus, there is a Starbucks located on the 2nd floor just beyond the staircase if you need a caffeine boost.

One of the most sought after stores for tech geeks and photographers alike, B&H Photo Video is a wonderful haven to peruse. The store offers an elevator to those who need one and there’s even a special elevator for your gear, so you don’t have to worry about carrying all of those heavy items around. Professionals and amateurs both enjoy exploring  this store full of photo, video, audio, light, pro accessories, computers, data storage, optics, and more in both new and used condition. The store also has an excellent reputation for having knowledgeable employees and a commitment to customer service.


Bloomingdale’s


504 Broadway
Entrance: Broadway

Elevator: Yes

Established in 1872, this luxury department store aims to offer the most coveted designers in one place. They often offer exclusive products and distinctive collections that are only available at Bloomingdale’s. Whether you want some SJP black satin pumps or Chanel No. 5, this is the place to go. Forty Carrots, Bloomingdale’s restaurant, is also located on the second floor of their SoHo location, serving up frozen yogurt, pizzas, soups, and more if you get hungry while hunting for items.



American Apparel


704 Broadway
Entrance: On Broadway

Elevator: No (entrance is on the ground level)

This American-made brand is committed to having factories in North America and employs approximately 4,500 workers with fair pay and comprehensive healthcare and benefits. In-store, American Apparel has a range of clothing items from soft basic tees to metallic leggings. This particular store is located conveniently off of Broadway on the ground level and is easily accessible via wheelchair, but that seems to be the case for many of their locations.
