If you were in or around Manhattan yesterday morning you may have heard a loud, high-pitched, piercing noise. It may have sounded not unlike Mariah Carey. Do not be alarmed. It was simply our editor Bradford Shellhammer.
Well it seems his weekly ritual of reading The New York Times yielded a horror story like none weâ€™ve seen in a very long time: The Rem Koolhaas 40 Million dollar Prada flagship store in Soho had burned.
Luckily, there were no life-threatening injuries. However, the thought of all those shoes, bags, and jackets burning is enough to make even the butchest queen cry. Also housed in the building is a Queerty fave: Interview Magazine. Hopefully, the damage is not too severe.
