And now, the latest from Racked, covering shopping and retail from the sidewalks up.
1) Chelsea: Learn some home improvement skills from the Novogratz clan at an Ikea pop-up this Thursday and Friday. They're teaching a seminar on design for large families, but if there's a basketball dome-making lesson, we expect to be informed immediately.
2) Noho/Central Village: Also in new pop-ups, check out the Bowery's new Rapha Cycle Club for all of your Tour de France watching, Third Rail Coffee drinking, $195 cycling shirt buying needs. Bike parking inside (and, er, a bus)!
3) Chelsea: Joining its sibling TJ Maxx on 19th Street and Broadway will be Marshalls, taking the former Filene's Basement space.
