The historic three story building was petitioned in the early 1990’s by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis herself to gain landmark status.  More than a century later it stands as a forerunner to boutiques all over the city.  Step inside from the chaos of NYC’s busy streets and get a glimpse into the world a hundred years ago.
