On the Racked: Ping Pong Goes Drive-In, No Nordstrom Yet

And now, the latest from Racked, covering retail and shopping from the sidewalks up.

1) Lower East Side: The LES now has a drive-in movie theater, kinda. Racked is reporting that the temporary ping pong parlor on Norfolk Street has ponged into DRV-IN. Details are as follows: There's a 1965 Ford Falcon convertible that seats six and it costs $75 total per flick. First up are 60 films. There's even a fake tree on premises.

2) Manhattan: Meanwhile, on the subject of Nordstrom's Manhattan search being narrowed down, not so fast. The conclusion is that it's another rumor: "Nothing has been decided yet, and as much as we would love to jump aboard this Drake Hotel bandwagon, it just doesn't feel right."

3) West Village: No delays, though, for Tommy Hilfiger. It looks like the first women's-only Tommy Hilfiger store at 375 Bleecker Street is on track for a late September opening.

4) Brooklyn: And, finally, there's the entire matter of the location of a new Apple store in Brooklyn. Needless to say, there is much discussion of the subject.
