Ephemeral New York digs up this trivia gem about a small 5-story building sitting at the corner of Macy’s Herald Square in NYC. The building, which is located at 34th Street and Broadway holds a large Macy’s shopping bag at its rooftop but is actually not owned by Macy’s. It is instead owned by a rival department store company named Siegel-Cooper (although I bet the rivalry is nothing like it probably was in the early 1900′s when the plots of land were being developed).
