And now, the latest from Racked NY, covering shopping and retail from the sidewalks up.
1) Chelsea: Back in January some ornery neighbors complained about the RuPaul ads posted in the windows of the vacant retail space of Chelsea's Gem Hotel. Now it's a sexy pop-up jeans shop. Upgrade?
2) Herald Square: A makeover of Macy's flagship store was put on hold by the recession, but the plans might be moving ahead. Changes to the old gal may include a redo of the 34th Street facade and entrances.
3) Williamsburg: Some in the Burg may be confused by the Vitaminwater signage that recently went up on Havemeyer, but we're more confused/amazed by this: A new bar/store that will pair t-shirt purchases with whiskey shots. Brillz.
