Walking Tour: Altman’s! Bergdorf’s! Saks!—A History of Elite Shopping on 5th Avenue
Join ProwlerNYC to delight in holiday window displays on this colorful tour of historic (and increasingly rare) 5th Avenue department stores. These iconic retail emporiums endeared themselves to the Ladies of Fashion while displacing them from what was initially New York’s most exclusive and expensive residential real estate. We will enjoy the architectural details of notable Fifth Avenue retail buildings, while learning about the quirkiness, genius, and motivation that fueled the ambitions of their creators and propelled New York to become fashion capital of the world. Allow 2-1/2 hours on generally level sidewalks.
Tour meets at 365 5th Avenue NE corner 34th St., in front of former B Altmans department store.
