11211 Love

Williamsburg, 2014

Some tidbits of neighborhood news:

My favorite Soho bookstore, McNally Jackson, is opening in Williamsburg this fall! And now that Idlewild is here, all my book-ish wishes have been fulfilled.

Marlowe & Sons expanded its shopping section into a cute little shop called Marlowe Goods, which you reach by walking through the restaurant's pastry kitchen. And there's a new children's shop, Pink Olive, coming to Bedford Avenue.

The frequently maligned L train just got voted the best (ok, well, the cleanest) in the city.

Urban Outfitters is opening a "concept store" called Space Ninety 8 here soon. I'd roll my eyes except that it seems like they are supporting local designers and the building looks pretty cool from the outside so far.

We're getting a bunch of new restaurants...Parm, The Gorbals, and Max, not to mention the gazillion new spots on and around Franklin Avenue I haven't tried yet. Plus this fancy new gym.

Then again, someone wants $1.7 million for a one bedroom loft, hahahahaha. What is this, Tribeca?
