Our sister site Racked NY will be featuring bodega retail through Friday for Curbed Network's first ever Bodega Week. What's a bodega? At the very least, it's a small grocery store not necessarily, but probably on a street corner. More (or less) accurately, it's a local hang-out, pet store, and occasional day care. What does this have to do with fashion? In New York, a lot of things. Let RackedNY tell you all about them all week long. [Racked NY]
