I was never hip enough (or rich enough ) to shop there, but it will forever remind me of Jack on Will and Grace (1.0).

That never stopped me, I love that store, the 8th floor was my favorite, now I stick to online even though it's not far from my office.

Never bought anything from the main Barney's but Barney's Warehouse often has some slammin' deals, hopefully those aren't going away.

Crazy rent is crazy for a declining retail store.

The Madison Avenue location, though, is now the immediate cause of retailer’s troubles. Barneys does not own its real estate, unlike some retailers. (Saks, for example, owns many of its stores, including its famous Fifth Avenue location.) Last August, an arbiter ruled that the annual rent at the Madison Avenue store could be raised to $30 million from $16 million.

The article states that they are keeping the Madison Ave store open for now. They have moved locations before - I'm old enough to remember - do you think they will move again?

What are those other 3/4 of stores doing right to survive?

The office of the mayor should NOT be subsidizing retails stores if they are failing to evolve and compete.

How do those other stores survive? Just from the sheer fact that there are 8 million people in the city that need to buy things everyday. You are never going to get every store to go out of business because many people still need to buy things. Just because most manage to survive doesn't mean the communist NYC (and now NYS) government isn't making life more difficult for them.
