Open for Business: Barneys New York, 2151 Broadway, New York, NY 10023, (646) 335-0978
Atmosphere: Earlier this year, the department store announced plans to shutter its little sister Co-op chains and renovate locations on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, The Grove in L.A. and Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn to re-launch as the higher-end Barneys New York. The new Broadway boutique takes design cues from its Madison flagship with a cleaner, more modern aesthetic featuring all new terrazzo tile floors, stainless steel fixtures and enlarged shoe, accessories and jewelry sections to boot.
Pièce de résistance: If the rumored Jay-Z collab comes to fruition, the UWS is in for some amazing windows this holiday season.
