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.

Earlier this morning, Crain's reported that Urban Outfitters and sister-company Anthropologie are gearing up to invade Williamsburg. So we hopped on the L train and polled passerby on Bedford Avenue to get their reactions. As with those J. Crew rumors, responses were mixed—but generally, nobody seems thrilled. See their opinions in the gallery above.—Becca Endicott
