And now, the latest from Racked, covering shopping and retail from the sidewalks up.
1) Union Square: Anybody that thinks 15 Union Square West is just about the condo is so wrong. Racked has the goods on the retail tenants.
2) Soho: Is a Muji backlash developing? Some people think there might be.
3) Red Hook: When is our sprawling blue-and-yellow friend going to open? The rumor mill says August, and Ikea says sometime during the summer.
4) Midtown East: To say that people are pissed off about the Georgette Klinger spa shutterings is an understatement. One email calls it "one of the worst closings I have ever heard of" and there are many reasons why.
