When New York's Big Duck store was built in 1931 to sell ducks and duck eggs, it sparked the architectural term 'duck,' used to describe buildings designed to look like what they sell. Though the Long Island landmark no longer doles out the birds, there are plenty of other establishments keeping the tradition alive. Check out these buildings that look like their offerings.
