And now, the latest from Racked, covering shopping and retail from the sidewalks up.
1) Soho: Soho is on fire. Racked got the hot tip that Mango, Sephora, and Hugo Boss were all evacuated earlier today, and the FDNY took over Broadway south of Prince.
2) Midtown West: There are renderings out in the world for Mayor Bloomberg's proposed miracle building, designed to keep young fashion designers in NYC. The 10,000-square-foot fashion incubator is in a former showroom on West 38th Street, and has private studios, a wide hallway for events and shows, and showroom space.
3) Midtown: La Maison Du Chocolat, the "high priest of French chocolate couture," plans to open a chocolate shop in a closet in the Empire State Building. How many $100 cognac-infused truffles can fit in 463 square feet?
