BRYANT PARK—Our brand-new sister site Racked National has jumped on the child blogger trend, enlisting a precocious five-year-old named Katie to comment on the shows. Read all about her adventures at Michael Angel (she met Bryanboy; they discussed purses) right this way. [Racked National]
WILLIAMSBURG—Modish, the Havemeyer Street outpost for all things urban hipster/hip-hop skater, suddenly closed its doors earlier this week. There's no farewell note on the window—just several For Rent signs—nor is there any information on their website. A sad day: One less place in Williamsburg to buy Wesc and Pegleg NYC, and one more vacant space on the southside that will likely reopen as another horrible closeout shop.—Frank Gargione [RackedWire]
