Barneys and Apple Coming to Williamsburg? Not So Fast

So that scoop earlier this week about Barneys Co-op and Apple negotiating in Williamsburg for their first Brooklyn outlets? Turns out it’s more rumor right now than fact. Retail in the outer-b’s rolls that way sometimes.

The Brooklyn Paper investigated the New York Post‘s earlier story (we got the skinny via Racked). The Post said the retailers were in negotiations to move into retail space in the new Edge condo.

The broker handling such decisions for the Edge told The Brooklyn Paper that such decisions for the condo are “a little premature.” Also, he would neither confirm nor deny the negotiations with Apple and Barneys.
