WHEELHOUSE: Hey, how’s that MTA fare hike working out for you? Our solution: A scooter. Faster, less crowded, and you can park almost anywhere. And now that ScootNY has opened in downtown Brooklyn, offering classic two-wheelers from SYM, Andretti and TNG -- plus Green Tec USA’s zero emission electric bicycle – for about $1700 to $2,600, we have no excuses. ScootNY, 155 Prince Street between Fair Street and Flatbush Avenue Extension; 718-388-8090.
JUST (RE)OPENED: Be sure to stop by the new and improved Guess SoHo flagship, which has just come out of a massive five-month renovation. What’s new? It’s got 2,600 more square feet, for one thing – and crazy Italianate details abound, like the black tin ceiling. Guess, 537 Broadway near Spring Street; 212-226-9545.
NEW: Replacing L.E.S. boutique Shop is an outpost of Nolita’s Bag, carrying excellent small-label accessory brands and their own line, Relysh. In honor of the opening, save 10% on hats, bags, shoes and more for a month. Bag, 94 Orchard Street near Broome Street, no phone yet.
