A circa-1951 view of Greater 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. A Stern's branch was in operation between 1955 and 1961. Gertz occupied the space between 1961 and 1979.
