And now, the latest from Racked, covering shopping and retail from the sidewalks up.
1) Upper East Side: Are neighbors complaining yet? Racked wonders about the rather, ahem, aggressive exterior on Madison Avenue (at 64th) for the first NYC outpost of fashion designer Devi Kroell. Interior design of the store, slated to open this fall, shares DNA with the recent remake of the Royalton Hotel's lobby.
3) Herald Square: Like pretty much everyone else, Racked commenters have been having a field day with Cintra Wilson's New York Times piece about her experiences at the new JC Penney.
