And now, the latest from Racked NY, covering shopping and retail from the sidewalks up.
1) Williamsburg: Above you see the remains of the vintage clothing archive kept by North 6th Street store owner Malin Landaeus. A weekend fire damaged or destroyed much of the collection. Keep your fire sale jokes to yourself.
2) Midtown: Today we've already seen the Empire State Building put on a chair, so why not Empire State Building high heels? Bam! What we'd really like is an ESB pepper grinder. No silly explanation, we're just big seasoning fans.
3) Hell's Kitchen: Yay double digits! Housing Works just opened its tenth nonprofit thrift shop, and the latest one is devoted to menswear and located on Ninth Avenue between 49th and 50th Streets.
