UPPER WEST SIDE— Brooklyn children's store mini-chain Area Kids has officially expanded into Manhattan, opening their 8th location at 451 Amsterdam Avenue and 81st Street. But it doesn't stop there, as Area Kids will continue to add a 9th location, the second in Manhattan, at 55 West 14th Street between 6th and 7th Avenues in three weeks. [Racked Inbox]
