Day & Meyer, Murray & Young

The New York Times reports on the storage warehouse of Day & Meyer, Murray & Young:

Behind the mute facade of a largely windowless neo-Gothic tower lies an ingenious system of steel vaults traveling on rails. Within those armored containers, which have been in continuous use since the Jazz Age, are stored some of New York City’s most precious objects and, presumably, a good number of its darkest secrets.

Storing the Stuff of Dreams (New York Times)
It all sounds like something from Steven Millhauser’s wonderful novel Martin Dressler: The Tale of an American Dreamer (1996).
