And now the latest from Racked, covering retail from the sidewalks up.
1) Midtown: There will be Apple vending machines at Macy's. Enough said.
2) Chelsea: A Racked reader rants about the Whole Foods and deliveries that sit outside for hours: "It is disgusting—everything from pallets of dry pasta to flats filled with strawberries to fish delivery chests. I'd imagine that something organic becomes non-organic after sitting on a side walk in NYC for a few hours."
3) Everywhere: A lot of high-end designer denim is about to make a play for NYC backsides all over the place with new flagship stores and more.
4) West Village: In case anyone missed it, Christmas came very, very early to Coach on Bleeker Street before the long weekend.
