Marine Layer plans to open on Friday in place of Kate Spade at 205 Columbus Avenue between 69th and 70th Streets. Marine Layer is a clothing store based in California with a relaxed vibe and soft clothes. The clothes are separated into “guys” and “gals” sections. Children are not children, they are “mini”. Plus they have a one-year return policy. Thanks to Bobby for the photo and Rebecca for the tip.
Blue Bottle coffee is opening a new location at 2901 Broadway between West 113th and West 114th Streets, a building owned by Columbia University. Blue Bottle is known for high-quality coffee roasting and sourcing. It’s expected to open in early spring 2020, according to Columbia. Dos Toros is also moving in next to Blue Bottle, as we reported earlier. There’s another Blue Bottle at 279 Amsterdam Avenue between 73rd and 74th Streets.
