The New York Sun has a great piece in today's edition about the opening of Ricky's NYC on Montague Street:
New York Sun: In Symbolic Move…:Two weeks after opening his first store in Brooklyn, the founder of the costume and cosmetics store Ricky's NYC said he is planning to open three more in the borough in the near future.
"I never in a million years thought there was any place to be other than Manhattan," Ricky Kenig, 45, said. "Twenty years later, Brooklyn is booming. We are evolving by listening to our customers, and they are out here, too."
He's moving more than just his stores into Brooklyn: Mr. Kenig recently relocated his family into a brownstone on 8th Street and Seventh Avenue.
The arrival of Ricky's is more meaningful than a national chain moving in, brokers said.
