And now, the latest from Racked NY, shopping and retail from the sidewalks up?
1) Lower East Side: Come Saturday, the August Nights series at the Hester Street Fair will keep the fair open longer hours, until 10 pm, with an outdoor wine and beer garden for the evening hours.
2) NYC: If you've already sat on/dropped/lost your sunglasses, Racked has a map of 11 of New York City's best sunglasses shops.
3) Cobble Hill: Cobble Hill's new J. Crew outpost is replacing a grocer, Pacific Green, angering some locals who would prefer their supermarket to remain where it is, thanks. There's a (sort of) happy ending to the saga: J. Crew is sticking with its plans, but Pacific Green will move only eight blocks south, replacing Mastellone's Italian Deli further down Court Street.
