It really is time to check in on the David Z store nearing completion on St. Marks Place between Second and Third Avenues. The shoe shop, which we first got wind of in late August, is readying for what will undoubtedly be a glorious late November/early December debut. We checked in on their progress, and the shoe racks are already up inside. David Z’s six other Manhattan locations always seem to be stocked with as many tourists as shoes, so it makes sense to open along this stretch of St. Marks—once an artsy counterculture destination, now a trampled tourist trap.
