1 PicADay Project: Day 189

Continuing with the NYC theme, here’s a shot of the front door of Sak’s Fifth Avenue in New York.

One of the most famous retailers in the world, this elegant department store has been dressing the well-heeled since 1902.

Opened by Andrew Saks, the original store was located in Herald Square (where Macy’s resides).
After merging that store with Gimbel’s, Saks opened this Fifth Avenue store catering to the wealthy in 1924.
