DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN—Today, in Fulton Street Mall news, a speculative development has surfaced regarding a possible new tenant: Brooklyn Industries. Brownstoner pointed out that the company has hung flags with its logo outside the old HSBC bank building at 342 Fulton Street. So, it sounds pretty likely that this will be the location of the company's eight Brooklyn store; have you heard anything on the rumor-mill? [Brownstoner]
GRAMERCY/FLATIRON— We always condone making the most out of bad situations, which is why we suggest you celebrate, and not mourn, The Conran Shop's upcoming closure. The British furniture store will be closing on July 15, and until then it'll hosting its Final Sale. We can't think of a better way to savor our remaining time with the store than to take an additional 30% off a contemporary standing lamp! [RackedWire]
