This lovely building is at 675 Avenue of the Americas in New York City. Adams Dry Goods, erected at the start of the 20th Century, was one of the many fine stores on Ladies Mile. It contains a rectangular atrium of green and white marble. In 1902 Macy’s moved to Herold Square and soon after B. Altman, Bergdorf Goodman, Lord & Taylor, and Tiffany & Co. moved to 5th Avenue, spelling the end to Ladies Mile. The 6th Avenue L-train didn’t help business either. I am happy to say that many of the lovely old stores have not been demolished. I love the lion’s heads over the left and right archways. Recent stores using the ground floors were Barnes & Nobles followed by Trader Joe’s.
