Before kicking off your Saturday, take a moment, won't you, to peruse the top Racked stories of the past week.
1) Chelsea: The soon-to-shutter Chelsea Barnes & Noble store cleared its shelves this week with a massive sale. It's time to say adios to those free public bathrooms.
2) West Village: A Domino blogger offended half the West Village with a simple post about a Marc Jacobs store employee's website. The internet: still ruining lives.
3) Greenwich Village: Keffiyehs made a triumphant return to Urban Outfitters's shelves. Urban is calling them "desert scarves."
4) New York City: Images of and specs for the weird orb that Chanel plans to plop somewhere in NYC surfaced.
5) Soho: Those silly Topshop construction workers left the door to the site open for anyone to walk inside. Guess what—it's going to be a huge store!
6) Soho: The bell tolls for massive advertisement and beloved landmark (to some) the DKNY billboard on Houston Street and Broadway.
