The ex-ugliest building in NYC to welcome Fossil shop
We told you recently about the demise of the facade of NYC's quite possibly ugliest building. As workers rehab the exterior, it seems the gritty Dr. Locke Shoes building is getting a serious makeover.
The space will be taken over by a Fossil shop. It will be Manhattan's second Fossil outlet -- there's one already on Fifth Avenue. Another one in the city can be found in Elmhurst, at the Queens Center.
Fossil has moved beyond just offering funky retro watches -- it's basically a lifestyle accessory business these days.
Per Fossil's Web site:

The Dr. Locke building was a throwback to Herald Square's gritty past; the increasingly shiny present has caught up with 38 W. 34th St.
