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.
We're trying something new with Street Scenes. Due to aforementioned technical issues, our polls are down, so we're asking you to vote in the comments (tallied results will be posted tomorrow). Today's subject is Caroline, shot on the corner of Varick and Charlton Streets. Leave your choice of 'Perfection!,' 'I feel strangely ambivalent about it,' or 'Who did this to you?' in the comments.
