Bloomingdale’s was started by a team of brothers – Joseph and Lyman Bloomingdale – and they initially began by selling hoop skirts in a shop on the Lower East Side. From there, they moved uptown in 1886, and their store began to grow. Its iconic Art Deco façade was introduced in 1931, and it now takes up a full city block. It’s been the location for many theater performances, fashion shows, and events, including the 1947 ‘Woman of the Year’ pageant.
