And now the latest from Racked, covering shopping and retail from the sidewalks up.
1) Soho: Topshop is not opening in November. However, March 2009 is looking very good.
2) Midtown:Brooks Brothers is celebrating 140 years of clothing Central Park's "Gatekeepers" by adopting Central Park benches. Anyone can have their name on a plaque for $7,500. ($25,000 for a handmade rustic bench.)
3) Nolita: Racked says that 'Tracy Feith's colorful, hippy-luxe printed dresses brighten the window of 209 Mulberry Street no longer: After ten years of business, the surfer-turned-designer has packed up and left Nolita."
4) Soho: Dutch clothing brand G-Star has opened its latest store at 441 Broadway. We're talking about a long, narrow space "filled tables of dark, stiff premium denim for men and women."
