And now, the latest from Racked, covering shopping and retail from the sidewalks up.
1) East Harlem: Costco is getting a friend! The brand new Target store (Manhattan's first!) opening in the East River Plaza mall will throw open its doors on Sunday, July 25. To build some hype, check out the Target train! Unfortunately, the nearest subway to the actual store is 10,000 miles away.
2) Upper East Side: The Whitney's got that new High Line museum to build, so where's the money going to come from? Special edition Keds designed by Jenny Holzer, duh!
3) Times Square: Now that the gigantoid and insane Forever 21 is open in Times Square (it has different sections based on different NYC neighborhoods, for cryin' out loud!), here's a critical take on the madness.
