Williamsburg has seen some serious real estate setbacks in the past year, but its retail scene seems to be holding up pretty well—better, at least, than more established shopping neighborhoods like the Flatiron District and Nolita, where store rents are more expensive. But it's still hard to maintain a big retail space full of designers like Chloe and Philip Crangi in a recession, and so Woodley & Bunny's clothing boutique is closing its doors. The year-old shop, above the salon and apothecary of the same name at N.10th and Driggs, just marked down everything 90%. Maybe that will bring in the foot traffic that always seemed missing from the location.
