Funny story i read somewhere - Rupert Murdoch trying to get the CEO of Bloomingdales to advertise more in the NY Post, his reponse: "Rupert, your readers are my shoplifters." Regarding the quality of the store, the 59th street one has some nice...
Honestly I think the pickpocket thing is overblown in Europe. I've spent plenty of time there and the only time i've seen/heard of it happening the victim was too hosed to tell what was going on. Same thing here in NYC, my friends from elsewhere seem to think it's "dangerous" but i've never had a problem.

Barcelona's really not that hot, at least in June (think low 80s/mid humidity). Florida is hotter & more humid.

There's a place on 38th between 7th/8th that has a machine and will cut 8 buttonholes for $10. Sewing the buttons on is extra, like $2/per. I think it's called Jonathan's; it's on the south side of the street, like 50 yards from 8th avenue. The machines are in the back and sometimes there's a wait.
