FLATIRON—Timed to coincide with New York Fashion Week, Rizzoli's windows have been revamped to tell the the story of Marimekko with an installation featuring four dresses from the spring/summer 2016 collection — two of which feature archival prints from the 50s — along with coordinating fashion and accessories, all for sale at the fashion brand's flagship (200 Fifth Ave). Inside the bookstore, Rizzoli will offer Marimekko: In Patterns and Marimekko - Fabrics, Fashion, Architecture, two must-have books for design lovers that provide a deeper look at the brand. The windows will be on display until February 22nd.

CHELSEA—The Real Deal is reporting that the 155 co-op units above Barneys' new downtown flagship have been without gas since May, when construction workers discovered a suspicious gas pipe and alerted ConEd. The residents are still without gas according to a notice sent out by the co-op board.

MIDTOWN—Ever wonder who's showing up to a 24-hour gym at 3am? The New York Times took a deep dive into the rhythms of Synergy Fitness on Lexington Avenue, where they found that the gym, in some ways, reflected the rhythms of the city itself.

MIDTOWN—A power outage at Grand Central Terminal this morning didn't have a huge impact on trains, but shopping in the transportation hub-slash-tourist destination was majorly curtailed, reports WWD. Apple, Diptyque, L'Occitane, Moleskine, Vince Camuto, and more were closed today after a reported water main break severely limited the lights at the 42nd Street train station.
