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

1) FiDi: Apple's coming, right? Well, yes, no and maybe. There has been talk that Mr. Jobs & Co. are looking at 15 Broad St. and 23 Wall St. as well as "confirmed" word about 23 Wall. Racked concludes, however, that "the confirmation doesn't seem too solid."
2) West Village: Another retailer is moving onto Bleecker Street in the West Village, and (pay attention) it's not a big national brand. Jewelry designer Alexis Bittar is going to be selling his "chunky Lucite baubles" at 353 Bleecker Street.
3) Boerum Hill: By all means check out the Racked photo gallery of the new shop And Then Some, which is so not Boerum Hill that it demands to be seen. Opened by designer Alex Eagleton, the dark shop is just off Atlantic Avenue on Bond Street.
4) Gramercy: Stardust Antiques is clearing out after 15 years of selling vintage diamond engagement rings and big, gaudy baubles. The shuttering is in summer, but the sale is now. So, who gets the storefront on the park?
