Trader Joe's Boosts Porn, But Not Apartment, Buzz

You thought we could go a day without a Trader Joe's update? Foolish mortals! Taste the glory of New York's tour of the newly foodified 14th Street: "The boulevard has suddenly become to gourmet food, according to one store manager, 'what Times Square was to porn.'" Ah, don't you know it.

Meantime, Elliman broker Lisa Maysonet tackles the important question: will the Trader Joe's opening juice real estate values in the area? She writes on CityVu: "We're very carefully pricing these apartments [at 10 East 14th St./5 East 13th St.] right now. Apart from the developers, nobody would like to see the prices get a 'Trader Joe's jolt' upwards more than I. That's why I am sorry to say that–as exciting as it is–we are not bumping up our prices as a result of the new store." And just like that, our entire understanding of the universe implodes.
