Swarovski crystal retailer has announced plans to open a shop at 200 West 34th Street on the corner of Seventh Avenue, near Penn Station.

Secondhand Rose, a 45-year vintage wallpaper shop, is opening a Flatiron location at 230 Fifth Avenue on the corner of 27th Street. Nearby, things are looking good for a summer opening at the Gansevoort Park South at 420 Park Avenue South on the corner of 29th Street.

What was supposed to be a pop-up shop for Phaidon books at 100 Wooster Street between Spring and Prince streets in Soho is turning permanent.
Restaurateur John McDonald is reportedly angling to open a third Mercer Street restaurant. While the official plans are not yet clear, McDonald, who owns Lure Fishbar and MercBar in the Soho neighborhood, is reportedly envisioning it to be an fancy burger joint.

In Brooklyn, a group of restaurateurs is pitching a possible burger joint to the Community Board 1 for Greenpoint called Park Picnic. The spot would be located near Lorimer Street and Driggs Avenue. Prospect Heights will soon welcome a new coffee joint called the Penny House Café at 732 Washington Avenue.

In Queens, discount clothing purveyor Century 21 is opening a new location in Rego Park at 61-01 Junction Boulevard.

In Williamsburg, Brooklyn Star confirmed that it will remain closed for the foreseeable future, after a fire ravaged it last month at 33 Havemeyer Street. A Brooklyn Heights decor and design store, meanwhile, is reportedly closing near the corner of Henry Street and Atlantic Avenue.
