And now, the latest from Racked, covering retail and shopping from the sidewalks up.
1) Central Village: Finally, PC users get a cool store. Even if it's a temporary popup. Racked has the goods on the new Dell shop on Broadway between 11th and 12th. There's no glass staircase, but, unlike that other cool new store, there's a bathroom.
2) Upper West Side: The Crocs have invaded with a shiny, new Crocs flagship on Columbus Avenue. It is "filled-to-bursting with all types of Crocs." All types, friends.
3) East Village: Leave it to Duane Reade to ruin Christmas with a "compost pile for damaged bags of cotton and dying house plants." Nasty.
4) LES: Yes, the Steven by Steve Madden store at Ludlow and Rivington Streets is now open: "Nail in coffin, people, nail in coffin."
