The landmarked building at 488 Broadway is far, far too beautiful for the Staples store it houses. But soon, the structure will be further defiled. According to this RKF release, 488 Broadway has been leased to "aspirational women’s fashion brand bebe". The store will occupy both the ground and second floor of the building, a combined 8,700 square feet. Score another one for the European tourists.
