Who offered macarons in NYC first?

It made me wonder: Who was the first to sell macaron in NYC? Was it Fauchon or was it Payard? Or someone else?

There was a really famous French pastry shopp/bakery on Lexington Avenue in the 70's (streets, not decade) that closed some time ago. I wouldn't be surprised if they had macarons.
Payard, no? I was crushed. Loved that place, even though they took my money and made me fat. They've reopened on Houston, but I haven't been there, yet.
There was also Les Friandises, although that may have been in the upper 60s (and which I don't remember seeing when I was last wandering about in the area, in August).

You never forget your first croissant.

Definitely not Payard. He's a relative babe in the woods.
That might just be the place.
