We had whipped out our iPhone and made more than a dozen calls in apparent futility. But, finally, a source close to the M.T.A. oh-so-quietly nodded yes, and just like that we planted the first seed and watched the Apple Grand Central rumor grow. A month later, our sources said the rumor was off. Indeed, a 16,000-square-foot store on the balconies of a landmarked Beaux Arts terminal had always seemed a tad ambitious. Our hearts sank. We thought about trading our MacBook for a Dell. And finally, we moved on. But now The Journal reports that the M.T.A. is trying to lure the world’s sexiest tenant back to the terminal. The Metropolitan Transportation Authority is looking for new tenants for a marquee space in Grand Central Terminal, and computer giant Apple Inc. has expressed interest in putting a store there. It seems that restauranteur Charlie Palmer plans to close his Métrazur restaurant July 1 and the M.T.A. wants to bring in a marquee retailer to help revive the terminal. To which we have only to ask: When will it end?Village Inside Vertical Living - JUNE 2011 | Manhattan Real Estate is A Lifestyle™ - 3

Standouts are the vintage dresses ($50–$60), which mingle with new finds like a checked dress by Insight with multicolored buttons ($76). StocK - (212-505-2505) Guys who want to look like extras on the set of The Grapes of Wrath should head to Stock, where Ameri- cana-flavored vintage is buyer Melissa Howard’s passion. The well-worn wood and wrought-iron interior is mirrored in the merchandise: faded denim, soft-beyond-compare rugby shirts, knit ties ($45-$65) and work boots by the dozen (starting at $165). trASH AnD vAuDeviLLe - (212-982-3590) Before St. Marks Place became synonymous with cheap, sunglasses and offensive T-shirts, it was the epicenter of NYC punk. T & V is real-deal—they outfitted Debbie Harry, the Ramones and many CBGB attendees—and, although it’s now filled with more tourists than anyone would like, the service remains amiable and attentive. Browse row upon row of Dr. Martens, skinny jeans by Tripp NYC (a steal at $52), studded collars, bondage pants, Manic Panic hair dye and plenty of other things that would make your mom mad. oDin - (212-475-0666) Sure, it’s expensive, but it’s the only place in the East Vil- lage that sells avant-garde men’s designers like Robert Geller and Coming Soon. The look is natty with a hipster twist, so pair your beat-up denim with an overdyed short sleeve oxford ($195) by cult-favorite Band of Outsiders and top it off with a Rag and Bone vest ($369). The shop also offers a well-curated selection of grooming products (lines like Malin + Goetz) and accessories (streamlined Commes des Garçons wallets).Village Inside Vertical Living - JUNE 2011 | Manhattan Real Estate is A Lifestyle™ - 13

But it doesn’t only tread in Wild West territory: Whether you need an apolo- getic arrangement of exotic blossoms, a wedding bou- quet of calla lilies or just a blooming cactus to spruce up your windowsill, EVF’s got something for you.BArBArA FeinMAn MiLLinery - (212-358-7092)Since 1998, Barbara Feinman has been designing hats for plebes (men, women, bridezillas) and Holly-wood royalty alike in her old-timey boutique. Handmade and tailored for the wearer, Feinman is deter-mined to find precisely the right hat for you, be it a custom job or off the wall. For spring, ladies shouldcheck out the ready-to-wear Flowerpot raffia cloche ($165), which evokes Audrey Hepburn, and gentsshould slip on the op-art–inspired Tropical Sting Brim ($160), a surprisingly smooth blend of your grandpaand Pete Doherty. Duo - (212-777-7044) Opened late last year by sisters Wendy and LaRae Kan- gas (the “duo”), this narrow space boasts a mix of well- edited vintage and up-and-coming indie designers—with an emphasis on labels produced in the U.S., like Keller. A tightly edited selection of vintage shoes (woven leather flats and Roper boots), bags (a stunning snakeskin box bag on sale for $50) and other accessories ($35 sun- glasses, circa the ‘80s with laces woven through the side) make this shop a big draw. cry WoLF - (212-995-9653) Justify spending cash on worldwide streetwear collec- tions (from cutting-edge foreign brands like Greyhound and Acme) by forgoing the expensive plane ticket. Husband-and-wife owners Abirir Ward and Nina Wolf switch up the collections here every season, rotating in labels from all fashionable corners of the earth.

Chockablock with industrial furniture, taxi- dermied mammals and vintage photographs, one’s eyes never know where to rest. The prices (and owners) are very friendly, and the place is the perfect destination if you’re in the market for, say, a striking dried starfish or a vintage bowler hat ($75). WHere to eAt?
