No, Macy's Herald Square wasn't the full block when it opened in 1902, according to Macy's own history site: from As for the Gimbels question, I managed to find that the Pittsburgh Downtown store closed 13 September 1986, and it seems like BATUS closed the whole chain at approximately the same time in 1986.

I BELIEVE IT WAS KORVETTES It WAS EJ Korvettes. I was working at Gimbels during that time and remember when Korvettes finally "gave up the ghost". E J Korvette was never in Herald Square. It was on 5th Avenue, several blocks away from Macy's and Gimbels. You might be thinking of "Saks 34th". Saks Fifth Avenue used to be owned by Gimbels -- there were TWO Saks stores in Manhattan ... the better known and more prestigious Saks Fifth Avenue and the less prestigious and cheaper Saks 34th Street. That closed around 1970. There was also Sterns which closed in the 1980s (I think)... it wasn't in Herald Square though -- it was on 42nd Street. One close by Macy's was a great store called Franklin Simon -- on 34th Street a block east of Macy's and Gimbels. Hope this helped. Maggie stern's was actually located on 34th and 35th st beteween 5th and Madison

An acre is 43560 square feet. This is a square parcel of land 208.71 feet on each side. A standard city block measurement was established at 6 city blocks = 1 kilometer. So 1 city block = 546.80665 feet. So an area approximately equal to 4 square acres = one square city block. This would be one half city block wide and one half city block long to approximately equal 209 feet wide and 209 feet long. This is approximate.

The terms 'D' block and 'square' block apply to differences in the casting of the Ford Cleveland engine block. This difference is visible on the block just in front of where the left head mounts where the fuel line usually crosses over. This casting mark either looks square or it'll be in the rough shape of a "D". The 'D' block is the earlier casting, in fact the initial casting of the 351C block and the 'square' block is the later one. How much later is open to conjecture. 'Square' blocks would appear to have been available in the U.S. in 1971, and there is some evidence to show that the 'square' block appeared in automatic XY 351C 2V's as early as May, 1971, and in manual XY 351C 2V's in December, 1971. It does appear that XY 351C 4V engines continued with 'D' blocks. What can be said though is that no XW or XY GT came with a square block, and that all Australian built engines are patterned after the 'square' blocks. All the 1971 Boss 351 engines were all square blocks. I know that the 1970 351C 4-V M-code was a "D" block.

The measurement of a city square block is not exact as it will vary from city to city. However, as a rough guide, in Portland, Sacromento and Houston a standard block would be 260 feet by 260 feet.
