It's Musical Stores on 34th Street

Desigual's future location on 34th Street.

The only Bakers Shoes in Manhattan, on 34th Street, has closed down and is moving. Luckily, they are staying on the same 34th Street block between 5th & 6th. They should be opening the end of this month and just in time for a little Fashion Week shoe buying.

Perhaps one of these for the first couple days:

Then something like these for the rest:

Desigual is moving into the old Bakers space. And don't forget, there's a new Aeropostale in the old Aldo space, Aldo has moved down the street next to the new Geox store, and Korean retailer Who.A.U. will be moving into the old Kira Plastinina space. Phew. Just consider all this activity on 34th Street between 5th & 6th as a harbinger of activity to come on 34th between 7th & 8th, as there is a lot of retail space opening up there soon. Yes, in the past I have chanted with the Swami for a Topshop in the 34th Street district, but there are several other possibilities I'd love to conjure up as well. Let the retail dreaming begin.

Update: And how could I forget Esprit moving into 21-25 W. 34th?! And the available space in the old Shoe Mania space at 11 W. 34th?

Wow, lots of change going on! I'm still hoping for a Top Shop. But I'd love to see an American Apparel, Barnes & Noble, and a decent restaurant!

FH make it happen ;-)

Yes, ma'am! ;) I like your picks. And we'll have to do a restaurant update some day, there are a few new ones.
