If you find yourself getting out of the subway here at the 59th St Lex station, it may be difficult to avoid the massive presence that is Bloomingdales. Taking up an entire block (a-la Macy's), it has entrances on all sides EXCEPT this stretch of 60th Street. Unless, of course, you count the one at the bottom of the Subway exit - which leads you into the Men's Store. If memory serves me, this was also featured in Cloverfield when the main characters exited the subway.
Because of it's sheer size, Bloomingdales absolutely dominates the entire block. Looking closely, you can see the main store is comprised of several different buildings - some smaller and older, it seems, than others. It appears as though they wanted to hide this as much as they could by painting all the buildings the same beige/creme color, which creates an interesting and surreal landscape of textures above the street. There are some administrative offices across the way, which are connected by a sky bridge over the street.
The character of the north side of the block changes rather drastically between Lexington and 3rd. Beginning with the classic Subway Inn Bar and ending with a brand new Ethan Allen store (which sits directly across from Dylan's Candy Bar and Dr.Zizmor).
Overall, it feels like a very utilitarian block, whith few stores, attractions, or even trees.
