And now, the latest from Racked NY, covering shopping and retail from the sidewalks up.
1) Williamsburg: Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz spent yesterday strolling down Bedford Avenue visiting local businesses. On the way, he decorated cookies, introduced a new clam chowder, and graced menswear shop ID with his presence. In honor, the place is now having a 10 percent sale.
2) Midtown East: Chanel on East 57th Street is doing some spring cleaning, which means free tables out on the sidewalk!
3) Cobble Hill: No, Jay-Z isn't abusing the free sample table at the Trader Joe's on Atlantic Avenue. It's just more April foolin'!
