Goodbye to an NYC Icon

NYC mourns as FAO Schwarz is closing.  My last visit, interestingly enough, was with Monique and Julia.  I went to middle school with Monique, and haven’t seen much of her since then, but thanks to social media, we reconnected.  We decided to get together yesterday to take some pictures of her and her adorable daughter, who just turned 2.  After a walk through central park, we walked through those familiar doors for the last time.  Mission?  The big piano you play by walking on, of course.


I’m happy I was able to capture this moment between mother and daughter.  It was a fun way to tie in the past, present, and future, although a little sad at the same time.  Onwards.
