Reflections on 14th Street

"Reflections of DSW" (study)

A new small study of the south side of 14th Street. Nice reflections on the facade of the building facing Union Square Park, now home to DSW's aisles of shoes. Back in the 1970's, this was the site of the old May's Department Store, yet another of the city's grand shopping destinations that are no longer around. I fondly remember other lost shopping venues - Gertz, Klein's, Abraham and Straus, Korvette's, Altman's, Alexander's... the list goes on. So happy that Macy's is still around as I've spent many happy hours shopping there with friends, enjoying some much needed retail therapy.
