"Hudson Street in the West Village never has been and never will be a retail destination. It is heavily residential so the stores in the area should cater to local residents. Unfortunately landlords did not get the memo and assume that Marc Jacobs (or some other overrated hack) will pay them a bazillion dollars for their spaces. Guess we'll see them at the foreclosure auction!" [MarcPacking District]
