Can you picture Nordstrom opening in downtown Brooklyn? We certainly can not. But the Daily News insists that "department stores are making a huge comeback in downtown Brooklyn, with Target, JCPenney, Kohl's and Nordstrom eying spots in the Fulton Mall..." Target, well, we broke the news of that store coming to Albee Square a month ago. And it's easy to imagine that Kohl's and JCPenney would be interested in the area. But Nordstrom? Just because Marty Markowitz flaps his lips does not make it so; the store will most definitely open its first NYC outpost in Manhattan. The paper does have more info on the Target, though, stating that it is slated to open sometime in 2011 after "construction is completed at the 132,000-square-foot City Point building" and that it will be less than a mile from the Target at Atlantic Center.
