Presenting All of the Winners for the 2013 Racked Awards!

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

It's finally time to announce the winners of the 2013 Racked Awards, our celebration of the best of the best in local retail and shopping. This year, Racked NY had twelve categories: three were open to a reader vote, and the other nine were editor's choice.

We'll toast all of the nominees and winners tonight at a gala celebration at The McKittrick Hotel, home of Sleep No More. In the meantime, see the complete list of winners after the jump.
