Urban Outfitters and Anthropologie to Williamsburg?

According to Crain’s, Anthropologie is going to join Whole Foods (and possibly Joe Fresh, Citibank and New York Sports Club) next door to Duane Reade, HSBC and Retro Fitness, which I guess has the advantage of concentrating all the boring (and largely redundant) retail on one block.

But that’s not all… according to Crain’s Anthropologie’s corporate sibling Urban Outfitters is coming to North 6th Street, next door to American Apparel (another match made in heaven).


J. Crew has also been rumored to be looking in the neighborhood

Why do I get the feeling J. Crew is the new Apple Store?
