200 5th Ave

Maybe I am a sentimentalist, but I am still mourning the loss of the Toy Building. I only got to go to 2 Toy Fairs there, but I will always hold it near and dear to my heart as part of the history of the industry that I adore.

Here's the website for the slick place the building has become. Note that there is no mention of the buildings past shenanagins on the site..are toys not chic enough?

Here's an old 1981 NT times article about the building

Some video of the last days of the toy building, I think by someone from Lanard?

Part one
