Macy’s 150th birthday is being celebrated coast-to-coast, but the national chain staged its biggest bash Tuesday in New York, the department store’s hometown. Macy’s served up cocktails, fireworks and a red carpet for the top brass as well as 1,200 employees, celebrities, designers and vendors at Gotham Hall, a block from the Herald Square flagship.
