Wal-Mart In Manhattan?

Gotham's blogs were buzzing this weekend over the rumor that Wal-Mart is looking into leasing the giant Union Square building soon to be vacated by Circuit City and Virgin Megastore. New York Magazine reports that Wal-Mart reps have issued a "non-denial denial" of the story, saying that the discounter has no "announced" plans for a NYC presence. I can only imagine the political theater that will unfold if the union-busting giant tries to set down in Union Square, the city's ground zero for progressive activism.
