This is a brief history of B&H Everyone’s favorite photo and video store The year was 1973. The mets went to the world series The first cell phone call was made! And Blimie and Herman opened a specialty photography shop at 17 Warren Street New York City They had a simple philosophy “Be honest.” “Treat People Right.” “And they will come back.” Thanks Irving! Also FREE CANDY!! And it worked! Over the next 20 years we expanded and moved to west 17th Street then 34th Street and 9th Ave And added more products! Lighting Binoculars Telescopes Audio Video Tripods Computer/Printers Mobile Televison/Projectors/Drones And EVEN MORE free candy!!!
