The curated store, Dot, is inspired by and named for the owner's grandmother

Move over Children's Place and The Gap; there's a new children's clothing store in town. Dot, which opened before the holidays on Amsterdam between 82nd and 83rd, specializes in girls' clothing. Although the new storefront, which carries carefully-curated lines of pajamas, dresses, accessories and everyday wear, isn't doused from ceiling to floor in pink, owner Pam Giffin hopes that it will become the fashion destination for neighborhood girls.
