A circa-1951 view of New York City's first suburban shopping venue, with a 51,000 square foot John Wanamaker at its center. This structure would house several different department stores over the next 27 years. Wanamaker's shut down in mid-1955. The Allied Stores conglomerate would operate a Stern's branch there between 1955 and 1961 and a Gertz between 1961 and 1979.
