1) West Village: Marc Jacobs, he of five extant stores on a small stretch of Bleecker Street, plans to add a sixth early next year when the company takes over the Biography Bookstore space at 400 Bleecker. Commence commenter shitstorm! One silver lining: the bookstore will live on elsewhere on Bleecker.
3) Herald Square: JC Penney is definitely getting ready to move into the seventh circle of hell that is the Manhattan Mall. How do we know? They made a video of the first merchandise arrival.
