If Tom Hanks's man-child character in Big had stayed in the toy industry much longer, chances are he'd have eventually ended up inside the regal building known as the International Toy Center next door to Manhattan's Madison Square Park and the famous Flatiron Building.
For decades 200 Fifth Avenue was the site of the annual North American International Toy Fair and housed all the big toy companies like a Voltron of toy makers, including Tonka, Hasbro and Mattel. The building's rise to prominence after WWII coincided with the country's growing toy manufacturing industry, but before its present-day facade was constructed in 1909, the same address held the Fifth Avenue Hotel, a swanky and expensive (it cost up to $2.50 a night) destination for everyone from Mark Twain to Boss Tweed.
Toy manufacturers moved out of the building over the years as the industry struggled and cheaper rent was found elsewhere. New owners took over the building in 2011 to develop luxury condo apartments while somewhere in New Jersey a boy named Josh Baskin cried because losing toys is sad and he probably missed his hot older girlfriend.
