  3. The second from the bottom photo is familiar because I worked at 10 East 40th Street back in the 1960s. You can see the former Knox Hats Building at the corner of 40th and Fifth. When the enormous Republic National Bank Building was constructed, it wrapped around the Knox structure. It replaced a gorgeous art deco Kresge's 5 & dime store.
