Welcome to my New York City series, “N Y C-eries!” Throughout these travel posts, I’m sharing about all of my favorites in New York City! My #1 favorite and desired to go back to as quickly as I can spot in NYC is most definitely Bergdorf Goodman. Bergdorf is located at 754 5th Avenue, neighboring The Plaza Hotel, Central Park, and Fifth Avenue. Bergdorf Goodman opened in 1901, as founder Edwin Goodman actually used to live in an apartment above the store with his family. Bergdorf Goodman is owned by the Neiman Marcus Group, and is home to some of the most luxury fashion in NYC, as well as two restaurants, and many fashion shows used to take place at BG. The staff of BG even once arranged a surprise engagement for a shopper in the main lobby. There is a men’s BG store just across the street, as if the 190,000 square feet store needed more room for women’s fashion.
I created a separate post about the BG Restaurants! You can read my “Dine at Bergdorf Goodman” post here: https://www.mcrowstyle.com/blog/2019/1/20/n-y-c-eries-dine-at-bergdorf-goodman
You can learn so much about the fascinating BG Legacy through reading the book, “Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf Goodman,” or watching the documentary “Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf Goodman. You can purchase The Bergdorf Goodman Cookbook, as well as “The Rise of Fashion and Lessons Learned at Bergdorf Goodman.”
One of the most sought-after fantasies about Bergdorf Goodman is the 200+ window displays each year, seen by a million and a half people every week. The windows are planned months in advance (10 months of planning for holiday windows) and hand-crafted to perfection. To see more about the windows, watch some incredible videos here:
