Lord and Taylor’s Flagship in NYC Goes Dark

Lord & Taylor, one of New York City’s oldest and iconic department stores, has closed up shop after 104 years.

On opening day in 1914, 75000 customers streamed through their front doors.  The amenities of the store included several restaurants, separate roof top lunch rooms for male and female associates, a doctor and dentist office, gymnasium and a concert hall with a built-in pipe organ.

WeWork will be the new tenant.
