The Tiffany & Co. store, at 727 Fifth Avenue, is a ten-story retail building in Midtown Manhattan designed by architects Cross & Cross. The granite and limestone facade features in the 1961 film Breakfast at Tiffany's starring Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly, a weary New York socialite looking for love.
Holly muses that a trip to Tiffany's "calms me down right away. The quietness and the proud look of it; nothing very bad could happen to you there."
The iconic scene in which we see Hepburn, in a black Givenchy evening dress and pearls, staring into the shop window on an empty Fifth Avenue was achieved by shooting at 5am on a Sunday. Every other day of filming 5,000 or more New Yorkers turned up to watch the making of the movie.
The building has served as Tiffany & Co's sixth flagship store since its completion in 1940.
