Hester Street Fair Coming Soon; Limelight Cursed?; More!

And now, the latest from Racked NY, covering shopping and retail from the sidewalks up.

1) Chelsea: Is Limelight Marketplace actually cursed? The mounting evidence includes the departure of Hunter Boots and Le Sportsac. The founder is planning to refocus the whole market on clothing retailers.

2) LES: Early May will already be street fair-heavy with the Festival of Ideas, but that won't stop the Hester Street Fair (above), which opens May 7. Racked has the rundown on vendors and food.

3) UES: Fashion designer Zac Posen hasn't just stretched his skill set to include condos. He's also designed a brunch menu at the Upper East Side's Le Caprice. More affordable than a Posen piece in 16 West 21st Street?but perhaps not by much.
