4 New Stores

Phillip Lim recently opened 3.1 Phillip Lim, 115 Mercer [Prince/Spring] 212.334.1160, the company's flagship boutique. Great-looking clothes, wearable, distinctive.







Opening August 3rd, Steven by Steve Madden, 488 7th [36th/37th], in the heart of the garment district, will be selling the line's shoes, belts, and bags. And the company has a big sale on right now — check the website for details, but you'll find shoes that were $199.95 selling for $49.99, plus discounts on dresses.






An apothecary of beauty products from around the world (many are not otherwise easy to find), Space.NK, 99 Greene [Prince/Spring] 212.941.4200, instantly becomes a MUG fave. The NK stands for founder Nicky Kinnaird, who also has created a line of Space.NK products for the store.




Rainbow Sandals, 245 Eliz [Houston/Prince] 212.966.8858, has shod a lot of surfers in the company's leather, hemp, and rubber flip-flops since their inception in California in the 70s. Their new Elizabeth Street shop is the only one outside of the San Clemente original.
More on Parking Garages
We heard from our young Benjamin Sann, who started NYC Garages. He says, "The website now includes free Reservations and Rate Guarantees at over 20% of Manhattan facilities. NYCGarages.com now forwards to BestParking.com (the new website). The new version also allows searches in Boston and Philadelphia, as well as a monthly feature for New York City where companies compete for motorists' business.

Businesses can also link to our unbranded, ad-free, custom mini-application, that simply shows all daily parking around a specified address, and allows for a rate calculation as well as Reservations and Rate Guarantees. Therefore, the user no longer needs to drill down through Daily and By Address.

One of the most exciting features about the relaunch: mobile.bestparking.com. It works from any wap-enabled mobile browser, and includes New York, Boston, and Philadelphia (daily parking only though). Our parking partners (Icon Parking Systems and Edison ParkFast) are now offering guaranteed rates via the cell phone service.

Best regards,
Ben

P.S. After biking each city repeatedly to keep the rates up to date, I've finally hired someone. Now I can make less flights home with my bike while at college.
