How Manhattan got vertical retail right, again
New York might have always seemed like the ideal city for multilevel retail complexes — until you actually went into one. By the turn of the century, such places in America's densest city ranged from failed to mediocre examples of the genre. In the last decade, however, retail designers appear closer to figuring out the problem.
