And now, the latest from Racked NY, covering shopping and retail from the sidewalks up.
1) West Village: A 200-year-old corner building at Bleecker and Christopher, a block from Marc Jacobsville, is becoming a store for Britian-based jewelry and bag retailer Accessorize. Paul Revere weeps...
2) Midtown: The Garment District is always barely clinging to survival, but now one of its biggest backers, designer Yeohlee Teng, is investing in the area. Teng has opened the neighborhood's first designer store, with a gritty interior inspired by the surroundings.
3) Soho: Like the turning of the leaves and the end of heirloom tomato season, we know summer is officially over when the Hollister door boys put away their abs for the season. That time is now. Sad.
