I dreamed I was walking past the Korean deli on 14th and 8th when I saw workers hauling out equipment.
"Are you closing?" I asked. Yes, a woman told me, empty coffee pots in her hands. "What's coming here?"
"A big store," she said, "you'll never guess."
"Brooks Brothers?" I asked. Nope. "Marc Jacobs?" Nope.
I begged her to tell me. "WalMart," she said.
