The Lighting of A Large Store

Mar 01, 1911

In the fall of 1910, Gimbel Brothers' large New York store, occupying the block between Thirty-second and Thirty-third streets, facing Broadway and Sixth Avenue, was opened to the public. There are ten stories above and three below the surface of the ground; the McAdoo Tunnels, to lower New York and under the Hudson to several stations in New Jersey connecting with one of the basements. The building was designed by D. H. Burnham Company, architects, of Chicago, and built by the Thompson-Starrett Construction Company of New York.
