Elle's Brand-New Offices: Infested With Thieves, Not Bedbugs

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Those poor kids at Elle just can't catch a break. After their Broadway office was infested with bedbugs, the whole team moved to the Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce building—a.k.a. the Time, Inc. building on Avenue of the Americas. Too bad that building is infested with thieves. The NY Post reports:

As the fashion title moved into its new offices in the Time-Life Building at 1271 Sixth Ave., an e-mail was sent this week warning employees to watch their belongings. "We're sorry to report that we have experienced several incidences of theft over the last few days. We are making sure we have locks available tomorrow . . . In the meantime, we urge you all to lock up your laptops or take them home with you until we have a way to secure them."
