And now, the latest from Racked NY, covering shopping and retail from the sidewalks up.
1) Williamsburg: Bedford Avenue's first Duane Reade opens this weekend. See you there!
2) Soho: Last night Kim and Kourtney Kardashian of the Hollywood Kardashians opened their new Dash boutique on Spring Street. The store may just be a prop for the sisters' new NYC-set reality show, but the scene was a total shitshow.
3) Tribeca: Project No.8, the ultra-hip clothing/gift shop with outposts in the Ace Hotel and on the Lower East Side, has a new holiday pop-up shop in Tribeca. Check it out, it's totally adorbs!
4) Times Square Regarding the invasion of teen retailers in Times Square, an Aéropostale exec put it thusly: "If you're a kid coming into Manhattan via Port Authority, it's a lot easier to go to Times Square than SoHo." Don't kids who come into Manhattan via Port Authority automatically head down to Tompkins Square Park?
