    Bloomingdales occupies a revered place in New York history. Arguably the premier destination for affluent Upper East Side shoppers, in the last century. Their inventory of luxury goods was unequaled…as were their commensurate prices.  For example, these loafers originally sold for something over $2500, considered a bargain compared to some of Bloomy’s other exotic leather offerings.
    Bloomingdale’s fortunes have waxed and waned in their 151 years of operation but for the boy that I was, trailing behind my mother as she perused the vast perfume department, among the swirl of elegant lady shoppers and even more lovely assistants smiling down at me, there will never again be a place of sights and smells quite the equal of that cherished institution.
