Racked Maps: The Reorganization of the UES

As we all know, times are tough for the fashionista. Esteemed houses like Lacroix, Escada, Yohji Yamamoto, and Luella have filed for bankruptcy, department stores are suffering major losses, and layoffs at major publications continue to take their toll. As a result of these changes, the posh avenues of Madison, Lexington, and Fifth have become a Darwinian landscape where only the strongest stores survive. Venerable boutiques have shut their doors, only to be taken over by the new blood—brands brave enough to hunt the elusive Upper East Side shopper in a most precarious time.

While some stores gear up for serious construction (Hermes, David Yurman, and Longchamp), other have already launched (Frederic Malle, Tommy Hilfiger, Herve Leger). And while some shut their doors (Banana Republic, Yves Saint Laurent), a few others, despite adversity, have open (Sephora, Crewcuts, Lisa Perry). To help you keep up, we've mapped the Upper East Side's major changes since July 2009.—Phillip Picardi
