Stocks & Frocks

Wall Street is suddenly rallying again… but not because of the stock market. In the last month alone, haute fashion houses like Hermés and Thomas Pink have popped-up on the southern tip of the city, bringing some much-needed flare back to the financial district. No longer a spot solely for discount electronics and tacky tourist tchotchkes like “I Love NY” tees, Wall Street has suddenly gone chic. And with another wave of retail big wigs moving in on the turf this fall including Gucci, Tiffany and Canali, why bother rummaging through racks at Century 21?  Cruise around the narrow, cobblestone streets and you’ll also find a smattering of ritzy, residential buildings. And with Whole Foods coming to the neighborhood soon, a slew of additional stores are expected to follow suit. Finally, some primo places for traders to blow their bonuses.
