Over on Racked, the debate about JC Penney in Herald Square has somehow turned into a referendum on the neighborhood itself. And it turns out, the craphole that is 34th Street has staunch defenders! Opines one, "hey it's my craphole too. I was born here!... [JC Penney]'s simply not out of place for a neighborhood that has a Conway, Payless, Old Navy, and countless crappy electronic stores. The 34th Street area is not exactly Madison Avenue."
