The latest from Racked, covering shopping and retail from the sidewalks up.
1) Upper West Side: If we said the words new Apple Store, would that be something that might interest you? If we showed you the developing exterior of the store coming along at Broadway and West 67th Street (above), would you be impressed? Good, good; we thought so.
1) Midtown: What's to become of Brooks Brothers' abandoned space at Fifth Avenue and 53rd Street? Per Steve Cuozzo, there's a veritable brawl underway for the space that includes Topshop and Uniqlo, with Century 21, Zara and Forever 21 waiting in the wings. De-vel-op-ing!
3) Lower East Side: Meanwhile, down on Orchard Street, it's all about hats. We kind of love this. A lot.
