The suspects can be seen crowding near an entrance of the 34th Street superstore, with two whacking a glass door with a hammer and a wooden baseball bat about 9:40 p.m. last Monday.
Others in the video are then seen prying open one of two revolving doors with their bare hands, leading to a mass dash inside.
Police said the brazen burglars made off with about $10,000 in merchandise.
Once inside, the hammer-wielding suspect, who wasn’t wearing a mask, was caught on camera swinging the tool at something else.
In all, the NYPD released surveillance snapshots of 15 suspects.
One of them can be seen holding what appear to be new purses. Another man was carrying a large black garbage bag.
The Macy’s break-in occurred amid widespread looting across the borough last Sunday and Monday, which prompted officials to implement a since-lifted citywide curfew.
