Mayor Michael Bloomberg, motivated by the success of Fashion’s Night Out and its collaborative spirit, is continuing to press the cause of retailing in Manhattan.
The mayor has been quietly staging group meetings with retail chief executive officers, and now has sent out invitations for a third, less discrete gathering: a big dinner at Macy’s Herald Square on Jan. 11 to be hosted by Terry Lundgren, chairman, ceo and president of Macy’s Inc.; Deputy Mayor Robert C. Lieber, and possibly the mayor himself. Fifty to 60 ceo’s are expected. The dinner will take place the same week as the annual National Retail Federation convention at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, which is being held Jan. 10 to 13.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
