You can now officially make travel plans for Presidents' Day weekend, since you won't be standing in line to catch your last glimpse of Killer Heels. The Brooklyn Museum announced via email this morning that its exhibit dedicated to one of fashion's more painful items will now close on Sunday, March 1st, instead of February 15th as originally planned. Pro tip: If you're looking to avoid weekend crowds between now and then, the museum's open late on Thursdays.
