Today's your final day to dance on the big piano like Tom Hanks in Big.

Beloved toy store FAO Schwarz is closing after nearly three decades at its current location at 745 Fifth Avenue. The oldest toy store in the U.S., visited by generations of New Yorkers, is still looking for a new location to open. Until then, take in these heartwarming pics of toy lovers saying goodbye to the New York icon.
