NYLON's Dani Stahl Goes Inside Tiffany & Co's New York Flagship Store

True gem

The following feature appears in the September 2016 issue of NYLON.

On the corner of 57th Street and Fifth Avenue in Manhattan, I stare up at the iconic Atlas clock. You know the one: the famous nine-foot bronzed statue holding a huge timepiece almost four feet wide, mounted in the limestone, granite, and marble entrance of the Tiffany & Co. flagship store. The clock originally sat atop one of the very first Tiffany locations at 550 Broadway way back in 1853, a reminder that I’m about to enter the home of a brand that’s essentially synonymous with New York City’s history of old-school glamour. I’m getting the obligatory Breakfast at Tiffany’s vibes.
