About this event

Join Untapped New York’s Chief Experience Officer, Justin Rivers as we go for a second round at New York City's iconic lost department stores. This time we'll explore the aisles of some old favorites like Bonwit Teller, Alexanders, and Lord and Taylors.

  • Learn about the world famous art that used to adorn Alexanders both in Manhattan and in their New Jersey satellite store.
  • Hear the story behind those famous brown and white stripes at the recently lost Henri Bendel  
  • Learn about the lost statues of Bonwit Teller intentionally destroyed by a future United States President
  • Discover how these old department store buildings have been repurposed and preserved over the years

From more recent losses like Lord & Taylors and Henri Bendels to department stores you may have never heard of like Ridley’s  and Koch and Co, the New York City department store has set the tenor for so many shopping, lifestyle and architectural trends in this city. Join Untapped New York’s Chief Experience Officer, Justin Rivers as we go for a second round at the New York City's iconic lost department stores. This time we'll explore the aisles of some old favorites like Bonwit Teller, Alexanders, and Lord and Taylors.
