022 BROOKLYN postcard Trendsetting Mecca I T'S OFFICIAL. Brooklyn, N.Y., is now the most expensive place to live in the United States, outpacing both Manhattan and San Francisco, according to 2016 data. And from passion-driven independents to mainstream retail coming in with a jolt, the retail scene has certainly taken note. "Brooklyn is a vibrant, ever-changing landscape that is intimate to the neighborhood, but still global to the people," says Jhipo Hong, transplanted Brooklynite and retail creative director of New York-based Dash Design. "It's where entrepreneurs dare to try new things and dare passionately." Part of what makes the retail landscape so dynamic is its dramatic diversity, Hong adds. Williamsburg is different from Prospect Park; Greenpoint different from Coney Island. "The fastest changing areas are the areas closest to Manhattan- usually anywhere there is a good subway line," Hong adds. "The pace of change is fast, but the pace of life is slower and more 'neighborhoody.'" For a first-hand look at Brooklyn, join us at the design:retail Forum at the Marriott Brooklyn Bridge this coming September.

The Brooklyn shop has the feel of an old world apothecary, blended with subtle modern nuances that give it that nostalgic coolness for which Brooklyn is so known.

The Parlor Coffee and The Meat Hook sandwiches are actually as much of a draw as the bikes and apparel, proving that the foodie culture is still very much alive and well in Brooklyn. In fact, a sign outside the shop reads: "Free Espresso with Purchase of Motorcycle."
