And now, the latest from Racked NY, covering shopping and retail from the sidewalks up.
1) UWS: We're in the thick of New York Fashion Week, and Racked's been keeping a close eye on the happenings, from the upcoming three-legged dog-inspired collection to what the fashion folks are eating (answer: olive-oil-poached tuna sandwiches). The city's also losing out on $17.2 million in rental fees now that the events have moved to Lincoln Center.
2) Soho: Signs of Diane von Furstenberg's upcoming store are slowly appearing at her future 135 Wooster Street space.
3) Midtown: Filene's Basement and SYMS have announced plans to open a joint store near Bryant Park, with the unpronounceable name of fbSY.
