Statement of Significance (as of designation - June 2, 1978):
From its beginnings in 1859 as a leather and tea importing business in New York to its position as the nation's largest retailer by the mid-20th century, A&P outstandingly symbolizes every major phase of chain-store history in America. The A&P Warehouse is a little-altered, nine story, reinforced concrete structure that between about 1900 and 1929 formed part of a manufacturing and distribution center for the New York-New Jersey-Long Island area.
