And now, the latest from Racked NY, covering shopping and retail from the sidewalks up.
1) Union Square: The upcoming Nordstrom Rack in the former Virgin Megastore space hasn't been showing much progress, but that all changed today. The inside's still empty, but at least it's now got signage.
2) Midtown West: Things that probably don't send all the shoppers running to Times Square: giant bedbugs.
3) Midtown East: For those who've been tracking the mallification of Fifth Avenue, there's a new addition: Sunglass Hut. How to deal with the added glitz of a Fifth Avenue address? A limited-edition line of sunglasses.
