GREENWICH VILLAGE—Is it curtains for the Banana Republic store on Bleecker Street and Sixth Avenue (the one that's transitioning into a Monogram boutique as we speak)? According to this brochure (warning: .pdf) from real estate company Staubach, the storefront at 205 Bleecker is on the market. [RackedWire]

LIC—According to blog liQcity, Long Island City is about to get a fine foods store—"Think Zabar’s, not Gristedes." Does this mean that things are finally looking up over there? [liQcity]
