Various locations in Manhattan, NYC

Walking around our old office neighborhood (Chelsea) and new one (Midtown), I’ve noticed a lot of details in the architecture that surrounds us. I REA Approve these small exterior touches because they make the buildings interesting, beautiful, and different from one another.

Old Navy store, Chelsea

I REA Approve Old Navy’s flagship store in Chelsea because of its history and retro-modern interior design. It was one of the first Old Navy stores to be built, and it features see-through escalators, industrial elevators, and warehouse-like concrete floors.

Do you recognize the reference in this window display? I REA Approve this Chelsea storefront by Manex (a mannequin manufacturer) because it recreates Maxell’s iconic “Blown Away Guy” ad.

I REA Approve this window display in front of Manhattan’s Bed Bath & Beyond – the one-stop-shop for all savvy New Yorkers. The colorful structure is clever, fun and eye-catching in a neighborhood whose tenants compete for attention. It also looks good enough to eat.
