This morning we have some storefront news from around the neighborhood:

  • 118 Ludlow St. (Houston/Stanton): Think Pink Spa signed a 10-year lease for 2,200 square feet of space, also according to The Real Deal.
  • 9 Clinton St. (Houston/Stanton): Ernest Alexander, the NYC-based menswear designer, opened its first retail location yesterday, a pop-up shop we first previewed last month.
  • 74 Orchard St. (Broome/Grand): Work continues to transform the former Hyper Island digital design school into a new home for By Robert James, whose menswear boutique at 72 Orchard will move one door north and make room for incoming jeweler The Great Frog, which had originally planned to open its first NYC store yesterday.
