And now, the latest from Racked NY, covering shopping and retail from the sidewalks up.
1) Upper West Side: Construction crews are working hard preparing Lincoln Center's Damrosch Park for its first Fashion Week. There is a scaffolding tower, and it is ginormous.
2) NYC: Fear not the chain store, for it is they that make emergency retail needs so convenient. In that spirit, here's Racked's ten shops that should be in Manhattan. Hot Topic, anyone?
3) Soho: Everybody and their stylish mother loves Alexander Wang, but the designer doesn't have a brick-and-mortar store to his name. Not for much longer! A big Wang is coming to the abandoned Yohji Yamamoto carcass at 103 Grand Street.
