Now Open: Kim's Somewhat Resurrected on First Ave

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

When we stopped by the new Kim's this afternoon around 12:30, it was closed, despite rumors that it would open yesterday. Apparently, we were both a day late and a little too early—it finally opened this afternoon, and chief Kim's watcher Jeremiah of Vanishing New York has a look inside. The new Kim's is purchase-only but, like the old one, it's organized by director and genre. Best part: The Love Guru posters are down. By the way, the store still sells CDs, which is bound to be useful if you don't have one of those newfangled computing machines. (We kid, we kid!)
