Upscale shopping at Bloomingdales


Bloomingdales, one of New York City's upscale department stores, got its start thanks to a 19th century fad — the hoop skirt. Brothers Joseph and Lyman G. Bloomingdale opened their first Manhattan store selling the popular skirt. Soon after, Bloomingdales added to its apparel, creating the first-ever "department store" with its multi-garment selection.

A New York shopping experience fit for a queen

In 1886, Bloomingdales made the visionary move from its Lower East Side location to its current Uptown location at 59th Street and Lexington Avenue. Steadily, the store expanded, and by the 1920s, Bloomingdales covered an entire city block. By the 70s, Bloomingdales was the place to see — and be seen. Even Queen Elizabeth paid Bloomingdales a visit, dazzled by the emergence of designers like Ralph Lauren, Perry Ellis and Norma Kamali.

Guests of The Sherry-Netherland can easily reach this New York shopping landmark, taking a leisurely 8-minute stroll along East 59th Street.
