Soho residents are already fed up with Nike’s massive n上海千花网龙凤论坛 ew store Sneakerheads are allegedly wreaking havoc on the neighborhood’s quality of life
“Just do it! Or wait…maybe don’t.” That’s what neighbors of the new Nike store in Soho seem to be thinking as they deal with massive crowds right outside their homes.
Last week, Nike opened a 55,000-square-foot store at 529 Broadway and according to residents, the shop has attracted unruly hoards.
“I was sitting in my [home] office with the windows closed when all of a sudden I heard all this crazy screaming,” Pete Davies told the New Y爱上海 ork Post. “It looked like a nightclub, not a store. There were big guys like bouncers out front yelling and pushing people.”
Nike’s newest store opened its doors November 18, allegedly clogging the street with rambunctious sneakerheads. The crowds are apparently spilling over to other buildings and blocking entrances, the doorman at 532 Broadway told the Post.
And locals are concerned that Nike’s weekly “Swoosh Saturdays,” which 上海同城对对碰交友社区 brings athletic events and celebrity talks to the store, will only increase chaos, according to the Post.
This isn’t the first fight Nike has had with worried Soho residents. When Nike began construction two years ago some accused the developers of e上海龙凤论坛sh1f xploiting a zoning loophole by labeling the project an alteration instead of a new building. [NYP] –Christopher Cameron
