And now, the latest from Racked NY, covering shopping and retail from the sidewalks up.
1) Williamsburg: The Burg's little-crafts-market-that-could, Artists & Fleas, just opened in its new location at N. 7th Street between Kent and Whythe. How are the new digs? Better question: How are the new tacos?
2) Noho: Part of the old and long-empty Tower Records space on East 4th Street between Broadway and Lafayette is now Blink Fitness, a $20-a-month gym from Equinox. Don't expect classes or amenities for that price.
3) Uptown: Already having taken over Soho, Britain's TopShop is ready to head above Houston Street. The TopShop/TopMan team is evaluating three or four uptown sites for a second Manhattan store.
