This week, Jon Caramanica checked out J. Press York Street on Bleecker. He describes the decor as such: "The walls are plastered with Yale ephemera from the late 1910s to the '20s, a nod to the company's New Haven roots and a low-cost design feature. Same for bottles of Laphroaig, Beefeater and Cutty Sark on the shelves in the rear, and the fake bookshelves that partition the store in two, behind which is much of the made-in-America heritage porn items. (Not everything is made in the U.S.A. anymore.)" [NYT]
