    The FAO chain hasn't done well. It drifted into bankruptcy a while back and all the other stores were closed, but a new buyer came in, purchsed that store, and plans to keep it open. It's quite wonderful and worth the visit (some of the tpys are unique, and you can't get them anywhere else, but the others are a bit overpriced).

    It is spelled FAO Schwarz.

    Go to:

    and click on Store Info in the upper right hand corner, it has the address and hours for NYC.

  • It is there, but has changed over time. I have also heard rumors of its closing, but am not sure what the long term plan is. I think it's in the same status as the renovations at my YMCA, pending.

    I was just there and it seemed to be fine.
