And now, the latest from Racked NY, covering shopping and retail from the sidewalks up.
1) NYC: One reason for the long lines outside the city's Ugg stores: they will soon be selling "Manhattan-inspired" boots with the Empire State Building outlined in Swarovski crystals. These will set you back $800.
2) Soho: Now visible on the corner of Crosby and Broome streets (and above): a mural of Derek Jeter that doubles as a Gillette ad. Every day, the painted Derek gets a shave. See it happen!
3) Midtown East: Fresh off its interior landmarking, some space at 510 Fifth Avenue will be going to Canadian supermarket clothing brand Joe Fresh, which has promised a "respectful" renovation of the space.
