Dance and active wear retailer Danskin is in a bind uptown. The Ideeli blog reports that the company's New York City flagship store, at 159 Columbus Avenue and 67th Street, has been seized by a city marshal for non-payment of rent. We tried calling the store, and got an automated response that their voice mailbox was full; an operator at Danskin corporate told us that they are in a dispute with the landlord, and that the store will reopen. In the meantime, you're going to have to take little Suzy somewhere else for a new leotard.
