Everyone says retail is dying. I guess "they" have not been looking around New York City. As landlords get greedy and push rents up, a new breed of designers and retailers are getting creative. Collective spaces and indoor markets are springing up all over the city. Shop Local is the byword. Jewelry and clothing, made locally or vintage, tees and teas, cosmetics, bags, home decor, sneaker exchanges, bags, record exchanges and even art. Don't leave out the Foodies either. No Brands allowed. Plant a seed and a new business will grow. See which ones you can find.
