Lords Of Retail
With a mix of business acumen and hard work, these American retailers built their own merchandising empires. These establishments range from the modest offerings of a five-and-dime store, to the splendor of a luxurious jeweler. While these well-known merchants are long gone, their legacies live on. Their graves can be found in some of New York's most famous cemeteries: Green-Wood, Woodlawn, Kensico and Salem Fields.
