And now, the latest from Racked NY, covering shopping and retail from the sidewalks up.
1) Midtown East: Israeli army self-defense program Krav Maga will be moving in to one of the lower-floor spaces in troubled Turtle Bay condo The Alexander. Learn to fight off all the people who say mean things about your building!
2) Soho: Formerly graffiti-laden Jersey Street is now home to, er, giant Kate Spade signage. Times have changed!
3) Soho: Hello Kitty invaded Soho's Sephora store yesterday, along with Hello Kitty cars, Hello Kitty makeup, and all kinds of other Hello Kitty goodies. Racked has a gallery.
