Upper West Side Openings & Closings: Emerald Inn, Banana Republic

I’ve been getting questions from readers about the construction taking place at 670 Columbus (between 92nd & 93rd), so it seems like a good time for an update. Despite some rumors going around about this becoming a Bed Bath & Beyond, it’s actually slated to be a Party City superstore.

MUW readers can always be counted on! On Thursday night I posted about a mystery storefront at 2381 Broadway (between 87th & 88th) and asked for help with identifying it. On Friday, MUW reader Betsy came through with the answer.
