MIDTOWN EAST—This one's for all the photo geeks out there: The Willoughby Imaging Center just added an in-store Leica boutique. Willoughby is New York's oldest photo-equipment store—it was opened in 1898—so this is a powerhouse marriage between brands. It's also the first time Leica has ever opened its own store in New York. Stop by the space, at Fifth Avenue and 31st Street, for Leica's full product line, up to and including binoculars. [RackedWire]

TIMES SQUARE—A poor little Conde Nast intern wore leggings to work, and somebody posted a photo of the outfit on Facebook. If you happen to be of interning age and want to work in fashion, don't click through—it'll just make getting dressed for the office that much more nerve-wracking. [The Awl]
