No. 7 & 9 East 48th Street

7 East 48th Street designed by McKim, Mead & White c. 1912 and 9 East 48th Street designed by Alfred E. Barlow c. 1912 in New York City.  No. 7 was the John Ruszits Fur Company which had previously been located at Broadway and East 11th Street but lost that location in a fire in 1911.  Click HERE for a 1912 NYTimes article on the opening of this group of shops which have all since been demolished.  Photo from Architecture, 1912.
