And now, the latest from Racked NY, covering shopping and retail from the sidewalks up.
1) West Village: Did Marc Jacobs take over the former Biography Book Shop at 400 Bleecker Street to open ... a book shop? And will that book shop be called Book Marc? And will any/all of this make the neighborhood's many Marc haters even more enraged? Yes, yes and yes! (Maybe.)
2) Tribeca: For too long the bike snob circuit has been dominated by the bearded ones, but move over, Williamsburg/Bushwick, because a new Tribeca shop called Adeline Adeline is here to class up the scene with a bit of a feminine touch.
3) Midtown: Will a Lego Store in Rockefeller Center make us any more willing to venture into the heart of tourist land? No, but maybe 30 Rock will have a scene where Tracy Morgan slips and falls into a giant Lego Stormtrooper. That would be hilarious!
