That’s right! According to WWD, the downtown girl’s favorite luxury UES retail experience is heading, well, downtown. In 2017, Barneys New York, whose current flagship is located at Madison Avenue and 61st Street, will open a 57,000-square-foot outpost on 16th Street and Seventh Avenue. What’s really sweet about this news is that the new shopping destination will actually occupy the same building in which Barney Pressman originally bowed his business ninety years ago. The department store only moved to its Madison location in 1993. Don’t worry, though, uptown girls and boys—you won’t need to hail a cab to shop the shoe sale or grab a Bloody Mary at Freds (yup, there’s going to be a downtown Freds!). As per Barneys’ CEO, Mark Lee, “We’re having two flagships in New York. Uptown is staying put.”
