2) Meatpacking District: Fashion label Theory will open some new offices. In addition to those already above their flagship store at 40 Gansevoort Streetyou know, that brick building with a glass canopy on the corner of the cobblestoney part of the streetthey will take over some room at the nearby, landmarked 2 Gansevoort Street. The label will occupy 79,000 square feet at the new space, including a section of the ground floor and the whole second, third, and fourth floors.
3) Midtown West: The city's largest indoor antiques market, NYC Big Flea, will take over Pier 94 on September 27 and 28. The market will include over 600 vendors spread throughout the pier's 140,000 square feet. If the event is successful, it could become quarterly starting next fall.
4) Everywhere: Oh Ricky's, that ubiquitous New York City purveyor of, well, everything alt beauty-centric.
