The New York Observer's just released their list of the "100 Most Powerful People in New York Real Estate," and Marc Jacobs, the king of the West Village retail scene (aka the MarcPacking District), makes the cut! He's number 63, and here's his blurb:
Marc Jacobs didn’t invent the West Village, but his five stores there have made it into a precious, pricey, overpopulated, well-corduroyed, bubble-skirted dreamland. There’s a store for men, one for women, two for accessories and one for noun-named children.Congrats, Marc. You can stop with the West Village expansion now. No, seriously, stop.
