Bergdorf Goodman is an iconic destination for any well-heeled shopper worth his or her salt. And the upscale department store is now officially a New York City landmark.

The site at 754 Fifth Avenue is of 10 new sites designated by the Landmarks Preservation Commission, which had the department store building under landmark consideration since 1970, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Commissioners have been working to clear pending sites that have been lingering, some for decades. New York City’s landmarks law turned 50 last year.
