MIDTOWN WEST—Dov Charney's hipster t-shirt and hoodie chain American Apparel is descending upon Hell's Kitchen. A tipster writes: "American Apparel coming to Hell's Kitchen. Location: Between Westway Diner and Rachel's restaurant on 9th Ave b/w 43rd and 44th. What was for several years a vacant former grocery store, now has an 'American Apparel is coming' sign. I'm surprised it wasn't another Thai restaurant. This might be HK/Clinton's first chain clothing store." How exciting! [RackedWire Inbox]
