DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN—After spending ten years on 12th Street between University Place and Fifth Avenue, Twelfth Street Books relocated to Brooklyn this summer. The store, now at 179 Atlantic Avenue at Clinton—down the block from Trader Joe's—is now open under a new name. Brooklyn, meet the Atlantic Book Shop. [VNY]

SOHO—There are two ways to ensure a Christian Siriano sighting: You can either camp out on Bedford Avenue near his Williamsburg apartment, or you can go the much more efficient route and show up at Belly Dance Maternity at 548 Hudson Street tomorrow between 12pm and 2pm. Christian's line of clothing for the fashionably pregnant, done in conjunction with maternity-wear brand Moody Mamas, goes on pre-sale at the store tomorrow. [Racked Inbox]
