And now the latest from Racked, covering retail from the sidewalks up.
1) Midtown: iPhrenzy persists, but the voucher system does seem to be working. The system that works best is apparently the one at the Cube. In Soho, though, there are still lines.
2) Chinatown: The Proenza sale is a madhouse. When the elevator doors open they reveal "a big room full of almost-naked women darting from rack to rack, stumbling around in half zipped dresses or nothing at all."
3) West Village: Don't worry. Steve Alan promises to be back in a flash on Eighth Avenue.
4) Flatiron: There are many images from the Dipytique sale.
