Here's a GemStory

As first reported on, the Art World space next to Johnny Rocket's is going to be a GemStory. It's a women's trinket shop to give ladies something to do while their boyfriends pay the cell phone bill at Sprint.

Community Impact: Neutral. The only thing going for this place is that the only other US location is in Union Square. And it's run by real Asians so it's got that Fay-Da/Sakura Ya exotic feel to it. Does that Asian kitsch/Manhattan connection outweigh the fact that it's a crap store?
