I grew up in New York, and remember the first time I visited the famed “FAO Schwartz” toy store in Manhattan. I, as well as millions of other movie-goers had watched Tom Hanks romp and play in this store in the movie Big, where he famously ‘played’ their piano. I was so excited to get my chance! I waited in line with the other kids and kids-at-heart. and then couldn’t believe when it was my turn. I enjoyed my time on the piano, and was excited when the day came many years later to take my own children to the iconic store. When I heard this store was closing it’s doors, my heart dropped. Yes I know they are looking for another location in Manhattan but that location is a part of New York history, and a part of my childhood that I will miss dearly.
