754 5th Avenue NY | Bergdorf Goodman Department Store

Bergdorf Goodman

A major luxury local department store with a lot of history (founded in 1899, and moving to its present location in 1928), Bergdorf Goodman offers shoppers top quality fashions, housewares, bedding, furniture, jewelry, beauty products, and accessories. Well-known for classic high-end fashions, they have expanded their offerings to include items for a younger, affluent audience.


This store is geared specifically toward female shoppers, complete with its own restaurant and an accommodating café. The stately building features eight floors of pure designer bliss, including spacious in-store boutiques from couture stars like Narciso Rodriquez, Chloe, and Jean Paul Gaultier on floors two through four—all furnished with swank, well-appointed dressing rooms complete with Central Park views. On five, younger fashion sybarites gravitate toward excellent selections of mid-priced lines like Marc by Marc Jacobs, DKNY, and Theory, and rack after rack of shoes. On the main floor, celebrity divas in dark glasses—and soon-to-be well-coiffed Upper East Side ladies en route to John Barrett’s ninth floor salon—browse the extensive accessories department, with buttery leather bag upon bag from designers like Nancy Gonzalez, Chanel, and Prada.


Because of its longevity in New York City, the store found its way into various Hollywood films and American TV shows – from the 1953 Lauren Bacall film “How to Marry a Millionaire”, to the 1966 Natalie Wood film “Penelope”, the 1970 film “Airport”, the 1981 Dudley Moore film “Arthur”, and most recently, the TV show “Sex and the City.”


Male shoppers are advised to visit Bergdorf Goodman’s second store (across 5th Avenue and 58th Street).
