Walking tour – Altmans, Bergdorfs, Saks! – A History of Elite Shopping on Fifth Avenue
Join ProwlerNYC to delight in holiday window displays on this colorful tour of historic 5th Avenue retail emporiums. These iconic department stores 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.
Tour begins at the CUNY Graduate Center (formerly B. Altman’s Department Store), 365 Fifth Avenue NY NY 10016.
Tour is mostly outdoors on level terrain.
