Hmmm... This might be a dummy question, but are those individuals anybody important? The image isn't large enough for me to make anyone out, although if I squint my eyes, I think I see Sean Connery and Moe from the 3 stooges

No one I recognize. Looks like Moe's hair (seated next to an aged Aunt Bee) is just a beret.

The 33rd Street PATH station, opened on November 10, 1910, is located on Sixth Avenue (Avenue of the Americas), between 32nd and 33rd Streets in Manhattan, under Herald Square.

The present station is not the original. When the Independent Subway's 6th Avenue line was being built in 1936 it was necessary to relocate the H & M 33rd Street station. The original station was closed in December 1937. A new terminal station located at 32nd Street was opened September 1939. Although the station is at 32nd Street the 33rd Street name was retained.

Gimbels New York flagship was located in the cluster of large department stores that surrounded Herald Square. Designed by architect Daniel Burnham, the structure, which once offered 27 acres (110,000 m2) of selling space, has since been modernized and entirely revamped, and now houses the Manhattan Mall. When this building opened in 1910, a major selling point was its many doors leading to the Herald Square subway station; thanks to such easy access, by the time Gimbels closed in 1986 this store had the highest rate of "shrinkage", or shoplifting losses, in the world. Doors also opened upon a pedestrian passage under 33rd Street, connecting Penn Station to those subway stations. This "Gimbels Corridor" was closed in the 1970s for reasons of liability. After conversion to the Manhattan Mall, parts of the former store were occupied by a mid-town branch of Brooklyn's Abraham & Straus and still later by Stern's. The building that housed a Gimbels branch at 86th Street and Lexington Avenue remains, but has been converted to luxury apartments


Taken from Wikipedia. Just something to chew on.
