WATCH: Swarms of looters rush into Macy’s flagship NYC store

NYPost reports disturbing footage shows swarms of looters rushing into one of the world’s most famous stores — Macy’s flagship on Herald Square — as Midtown descended into chaos overnight.

One overhead video showed looters racing into one of the boarded-up entrances shortly before the curfew started Monday night — with only a small unexplained explosion seeming to halt the rush.

Other clips showed a steady stream of cops finally arriving to follow the looters inside the Manhattan superstore on 34th, which had been boarded up in a feeble attempt to protect it from potential attack.

“Hundreds of looters and rioters here with absolutely no concerns about cops being here,” Rachel Olding said along with one of the clips.

A Fox News reporter, Bryan Llenas, saw officers still bringing out cuffed suspects as the 11 p.m. curfew started.

Llenas suggested the cops appeared helpless, making only a handful of arrests while there were “so many people going from spot to spot to spot” in a seemingly organized fashion.
