And now, the latest from Racked NY, covering shopping and retail from the sidewalks up.
1) Soho: Sculptor Frosty Myers's big blue The Wall installation came back to Houston Street after a five-year absence in 2007. Since then it has had to compete for attention with billboards placed directly beneath it, and now the battle may be lost: American Eagle has put up sexy lingerie photos under the odd art. Click through for serious thong action.
2) Coney Island: Who's getting excited for the BK Festival, Thor Equities's latest attempt to stick a seasonal flea market on its fallow and depressing Coney Island lots? No one? What if Racked told you there will be bounce houses?
3) Murray Hill: Speaking of intimate apparel, The Hill has a new shop, Linda's Bra Salon, that elicited this response from a blogger: "HOLY CRAP, HAVE YOU EVER SEEN SO MANY UNDIES IN YOUR ENTIRE LIFE?" Well, have you?
