    I mean, it depends. Are we talking the kinds of boutiques that exist in SoHo? I doubt it, but with the recent renovations and upgrades to the Gap and VS that are in herald square, and the addition of that massive uniqlo, it's not far off as a large commercial district. It would only take a few more giant flagship stores (and there's a Zara, Forever 21, BR, and Aeropostale already here), and the whole thing is made. I think there's a large pool of mainstream premium brands to choose from without flipping to boutique.

    I agree, but in that respect, Herald Square has always been a major shopping district.

    They're going to have to do some major reconfiguring of rooms / knocking down walls if they're serious about renovating. Many of the rooms in the "fingers" are so small that they can just fit a single double with two feet of walking room.

    It would be nice if they would bring back the two-story lobby

    Oh Lord I hope there are other rooms to that suite! It looks like an old LES subdivided tenement.
