After months of holding out, Krispy Kreme has finally put a date on the calendar for the opening of its sprawling Times Square flagship store. On September 15, the new store — located at 1601 Broadway, at West 48th Street — will flip the switch on the world’s largest hot light, the company’s signal that fresh doughnuts are ready for eating. Unlike the doughnut chain’s other New York City outposts, the Times Square location has lots of bells and whistles, including a glaze waterfall and a production line capable of making close to 400 dozen doughnuts per hour. There will also be a 24-hour walk-up window, where customers can order boxes of doughnuts for takeout.

For nearly 40 years, Venezuelan-born Carolina Herrera has been captivating the world with her flair for creating glamourous fashions. Her New York flagship originally opened in 2000 at Madison Avenue and 75th Street. After recently transferring creative direction to Wes Gordon, it was time for a refresh, and the boutique underwent a major renovation.
The original 6,900-sq.-ft. three-story townhouse was transformed into a modern fashion destination. Women’s apparel dominates the ground floor, along with an expansive black-and-white hexagonal tile floor and a dramatic sweeping staircase of pale pink Venetian plaster. The second level continues with more apparel and fragrances, and the third floor features the bridal boutique. It exudes glamour with its blush-colored seating and custom chandelier made of pink Venini flowers.
