And now, the latest from Racked, covering retail and shopping from the sidewalks up.
1) Soho and Midtown East: Above, meet the first people in line to snag an iPhone at the respective Apple Stores on Prince Street and 59th Street when the units go on sale this Friday at 6pm. The future is upon us, friends. Seeking your very own Jesus Phone? Enterprising souls are seeking line stand-ins on Craigslist. Surely you can too! More on the iPhrenzy all week long, natch.
2) Lower East Side: Further post-mortem from shuttered bakery Gertel's: a cafe around the corner from the legendary shop is selling Gertel's pastries. Nice.
3) FiDi: Following last week's opening of the FiDi Hermès, men's shirt purveyor Thomas Pink hops the downtown trend with the opening of its fourth NYC store, this one on Wall Street. Three thousand square feet of slightly uptight glory!
