Barneys Chelsea Co-op to Close; Post-Sandy Seaport Shops

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

1) Chelsea: Barneys confirmed that the department store will be closing its Chelsea Co-op after next month's warehouse sale. And it's also searching for a Downtown flagship.

2) Seaport: Still-shuttered shops along historic Front Street in the Seaport are using a crowdfunding website to let customers buy gift cards while they work to reopen.

3) Nolita: Wonder where that vintage shirt came from? Racked asks a psychic about the past lives of clothes.

4) Rikers Island: Bet you didn't know that inmates at Rikers can take classes on fashion theory.
