I can remember going to Macys in NYC a couple times a year in the late 1970s and early 1980s. My father would take me(maybe 10yo) into the city from long island on the LIRR, and we would make a day of it in the city. Can remember going to the main post office on 8th ave, and looking at the what seemed like an endless set of steps to get in there, and go to the philatelic window!. Loved going to Macys, riding up the old wooden escalator and buying a few coins and stamps. Was sad when I hadnt been there in a while, and went up to where it was located to find it was gone, that was sometime in the mid 1980's if I recall. Still keep cancelled stamps in this old Macys envelope. Whenever I open the box its kept it, just brings back memories of time spent with my father. That envelope is worth more to me than the stamps I have collected.
