Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.
It's clear what you're thinking: Racked has had some work done. We went under the knife and emerged sleeker, more youthful, and with sexy new widgets. Well, we have no idea what you're talking about. We're just really well-rested, you know? We've been doing a lot of yoga and following all the instructions in GOOP and it's just really brought out our inner luminescence.
Oh, who are we kidding? Welcome to Racked's new full-body makeover. If you've been reading Eater or Curbed, you'll recognize the new look. The goal is to make it easier to get recent news about individual neighborhoods—which you can now access via links to the right of each post and a big neighborhood list down the right-hand column. We've also gone a little map-happy, showing mapped locations alongside many posts (and, for the truly obsessed amongst us, on the Giant Map that shows recent posts from all Curbed Network sites.) And we're tweaking the way user comments are displayed—guest (anonymous) comments are now hidden by default. To view them, click the "Show guest comments" link at the top and bottom of each comment thread.
Meantime, while you play around with our new design, do let us know if you see anything awry. Or if you just want to vent. Or say hi. Emails to the tipline, as per usual. And, as always, our profound thanks for your support of Racked.
