And now, the latest from Racked NY, covering shopping and retail from the sidewalks up.
1) UWS: As Borders leaves behind an empty shell on the second floor of the Time Warner Center, the space next door will be home to J. Crew Men's, coming this fall. Projected opening date: November.
2) MePa: The Hotel Williamsburg has Brooklyn Industries-provided staff uniforms, and now the Hotel Gansevoort and Soho House will get uniforms designed by Lacoste. It's part of the brand's "broader effort to reinvigorate Lacoste, which some may associate with a bygone preppy era."
3) Sheepshead Bay: Do have your "Survived the Quake" tattoo yet?
