There goes another Manhattan neighborhood

So the Virgin Megastore has moved out of its Union Square spot and guess who’s moving in? Anodyne schmata seller Nordstrom Rack (a name they could only come up with in Seattle) and that vendor of all things pointless, perfunctory and made in China, Best Buy.

Upon learning this news, your chief Voyagiste almost vomited on his keyboard, but he managed to hold it back enough to read this statement from Jennifer Falk, executive director of the Union Square Partnership:

“Nordstrom Rack and Best Buy are a perfect complement to the district…”

Then, the Voyagiste threw up all over his keyboard.
