And now, the latest from Racked NY, covering shopping and retail from the sidewalks up.
1) UWS: The mystery plywooded retail space (above) next to Rag & Bone on Columbus Avenue, once Peter's restaurant, is going to be French store Comptoirs des Cotonniers. With Rag & Bone, Uggs, MAC, Burberry Brit, and more, this corner of the UWS is looking a little Soho, no?
2) NYC: Racked sent a reporter around the city wearing men's legging jeans, or majeggings. Good news: they are "the perfect pants to wear while being mugged."
3) Union Square: A shopper snapped a photo of prepared food in the elevator at the Union Square Whole Foods?right next to a bunch of overflowing trash cans. Yum!
