A preppy wind is blowing down Tribeca way: The long-awaited men's J.Crew in the old site of the Liquor Store bar at 235 West Broadway will open in two days, according to a mailing sent out by the company. Since J.Crew is on a Rolexes-and-$500-bags kick, expect lots of shmancy extras among the cashmere sweaters. And since they pushed back the launch date almost four months (it was slated to open May 1st), expect a particularly well-buffed refurbished interior.
