The tees will be available for men, women, and children through May 7th, and 20% of each $28 price tag will help the library purchase new books, DVD, and eBooks.

UPPER WEST SIDE—Yesterday, news spread that the stretch of Columbus Avenue between 67th and 89th Street is now fully occupied, and today, more info on some of its recent tenants and switcheroos has been supplied by the Columbus Avenue BID. The former Michele Golan jewelry store will become another yet-unnamed jewelry store, and women's clothing store Emmelle has been replaced by another women's clothing store, Oska. [West Side Rag]
