And now, the latest from Racked NY, covering shopping and retail from the sidewalks up.
1) NYC: Housing Works and the city government have a new plan, RefashionNYC, to get New Yorkers to give away more of their old clothing instead of throwing it out. Building managers just have to pick up metal bins, adorably photographed above, from the city and organize pickup when bins are full.
2) West Village: We last met the somewhat scandal-plagued townhouse at 407 Bleecker Street when the owners' restraining orders against each other lured the PriceChopper to stop by. Soon the place will be home to a Jimmy Choo boutique.
3) UWS: Now that Equinox has purchased spinning studio chain SoulCycle, it has some big expansion plans in mind: nine new SoulCycle locations, including a 2,000-square-foot one at the Upper West Side's Harrison. Would Bobby A.M. approve?
