FIDI—Glasses brand Artsee just opened its second New York store and third store ever in the Goldman Sachs building. The frames are all handmade, and they're presented with care. Founder Julio Santiago told Tribeca Citizen, "We display frames like they’re a museum collection." There's an art gallery look to the store design as well. [Tribeca Citizen]

HERALD SQUARE—Yesterday, police arrested a man at an Occupy Wall Street protest for threatening Macy's, among other things. Video of the scene shows Nkrumah Tinsley yelling, "In a few days they’re going to see what a Molotov cocktail can do to Macy’s." His lawyer argued today that the threats were just "bluster."
