And now, the latest from Racked, covering shopping and retail from the sidewalks up.
1) Lower East Side: Gothic Menswear store Bblessing is closing soon. Now where will we get the skull-shaped paperweight we use to hold down our arrested development photo collection?
2) East Harlem: The new Target at East River Plaza opened Sunday (to quite the line, above), and Racked follows up its sneak preview with a full opening report. So far the best reviews go to the food section. Gentrification watch: the store has coconut milk, hempmilk, rice milk, and goat milk.
3) West Village/Prospect Heights: Curious about the sort of people who own a weekday home in the West Village and a weekend place in On Prospect Park? Learn more about menswear designers Daniel Silver and Steven Cox, who insist they're trying to keep their Brooklyn decor "minimal."
