Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.
Welcome to our first-ever Racked awards, in which we bestow honors upon our fair city's TOP retail experiences. Over the next few days, we'll cover categories including Best Store, Best Window, Best Shopping Street, and more. Today, you'll be the kingmaker: vote for your favorite from our list of the city's best stores. Your votes will narrow it down to the top three, from which we'll select the winner for Best Store.
All the winners will be announced on October 25, at a glamorous Manhattan gala. Greatness will be recognized! The victors will drink champagne! And Golden Turbans will be awarded. But first, we have to pick our winners. Stay tuned for the first vote later this afternoon, and watch for more polls throughout the week.
