19 Great Stores in NYC

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.

New York nostalgia blog Lost City is dunzo-ing itself, reports our sister site Racked NY. The four-and-a-half year old site is officially over it—calling New York City "homogenous, anodyne, whitewashed, suburban, toothless, chain-store-ridden, ordinary, exclusive and terribly, terribly expensive." In the Lost City swan song, blogger Brooks of Sheffield lists 19 stores that he considers the city's best—including C.O. Bigelow, Strand Bookstore, Pearl Paint, and Worth and Worth Hats. Check out the full list here. [RNY]
