1) Soho: French brand Equipment has opened its first U.S. store in Soho after a 10-month wait, and Racked has a peek at its minimalist look. Sleek, non?
2) Downtown Brooklyn: Intermix will open a Bowery boutique this spring, and next up is a Downtown Brooklyn store meant to capitalize on the Barclays Center-induced "retail renaissance."
3) NYC: The turn of the year is a time for retail nostalgia, so here's a look at 2012's lost retail landmarks.
