Remember when a water main broke in the Central Subway Tunnel in Union Square earlier this month, flooding nearby luxury stores like Neiman Marcus? If you were hoping for a Neiman's flood sale, you're out of luck. The NM mothership in Dallas tells us there was no merchandise damaged in the flood, only carpets and fixtures. At least the pretty things are safe. [Racked Inbox]
