Interesting Article on Tiffany and Company’s original location

At the end of book 5, chapter 4 of “A Hazard of New Fortunes,” Conrad Dryfoos, son of the millionaire backer “Every Other Week” goes by Brentano’s bookstore, right before he is shot and killed by a police officer during the start of the rail workers’ strike.  As this NY Times article relates, Brentano’s at the time was located at the South Corner of 15th Street and Union Square, in a building owned by Tiffany and Company, designed by John Kellum (who also designed the New York Herald Building at Broadway and Ann Street).
