And now, the latest from Racked NY, covering shopping and retail from the sidewalks up.
1) Chinatown Photographer and art director Timothy Saccenti has worked with Pharrell, so you know he's not afraid to travel off the beaten path. Where does he get his tech toys? Chinatown's Hi-Tech Electronic Service Center, of course. Check this place out.
2) Far West Side: There have been roughly 26,392 rumored Manhattan locations for a Nordstrom store over the past few years, and the latest is none other than Hudson Yards. We'll believe it when we see it, sometime in the year 2135.
3) Boerum Hill: The upscaling of the brownstone Brooklyn retail scene continues! Suave designer Steven Alan has now expanded into his and hers shops on Atlantic Avenue. Move over, Barney's Co-op!
