Bergdorf Goodman New York for Fashion on Fifth Avenue
In 1899, when Herman Bergdorf opened his tiny downtown tailor’s shop and took on apprentice Edwin Goodman, none could have guessed this partnership would one day become Bergdorf Goodman, famous Fifth Avenue luxury fashion retailer. Sneaking in just under the wire as the 20th century dawned, Bergdorf Goodman’s wearable design concepts were well ahead of their time.
Success meant expansion, and eventually, a 1928 move to the current Fifth Avenue location occurred shortly after The Sherry-Netherland opened its doors. The internationally known New York City fashion emporium and landmark has been our neighbor ever since. Bergdorf Goodman’s enviable location at Fifth Avenue and 58th Street is a Beaux-Arts style structure on the site of the former Cornelius Vanderbilt II mansion, once the grandest house in America.

A palace of high-end fashion, Bergdorf Goodman was the first couturier to introduce ready-to-wear fashion for style-conscious women.
