Rotunda from the City of Paris Dry Goods Company

This magnificent rotunda, topped with glass dome and glass skylight, originally belonged to the City of Paris building, was actually saved from demolition and moved to its current location at Neiman Marcus. Historic building, even those armed with rich stories and architecture, often find it difficult to survive economic redevelopment. Local awareness, education, preservation ordinances are needed to protect them from being ruined.
