FAO Schwarz Is Reopening in New York City

It’s true.

FAO Schwarz has announced plans to reopen at a new, smaller location in New York City’s Rockefeller Center.

The new store will make its debut in 2018. (Is it too soon to start counting down to next holiday season?)

FAO Schwarz closed its doors back in 2015 due to rising rent costs. The iconic toy store was founded in 1862, in Baltimore.
