Water Street Place
Elmira, NY
former Woolworth
Gloversville, NY
Water Street Place occupies a former Woolworth. The building now houses multiple tenants. This building is sometimes referred to as the "Bickford Building", a reference to the architects responsible for it, Pierce and Bickford. The Woolworth safe is still located on the second floor and some of the original tilework remains. [map]

The Woolworth in Gloversville closed in 1993. It became a Ben Franklin store in 1997 and, as of 2005, is a Great Rentals store. Above the front doors, still readable under the white paint, are panels that read "Visit Woolworth's Luncheonette". For more, see this website. [map]

former Woolworth
Peekskill, NY
This former Woolworth store appears to be from the 1920s or 1930s. The building was dressed up with two fake Kresge's signs in 2010 for the filming of HBO's "Mildred Pierce". These signs were then adapted by the building's current tenants. [map]
