New York City Update: The Best New Spots
We just spent 72-hours in the city—and ate and shopped our way through as many neighborhoods as possible. Here, the new-ish spots we’re most excited about.
Sharktooth111 Grand St., Williamsburg | 718.451.2233
Devoted solely to antique textiles—from overdyed quilts, to Khamseh and Turkish Milas rugs—the pieces here are clearly hard-won, and very reasonably priced considering their quality and provenance. Whether redecorating, or just hunting for ideas, this is one of those spots that offers inspiration in spades.
Joinery263 S. 1st St., Williamsburg | 347.889.6164
Styled like an old-school farmhouse—with pale wood floors and a charred ceiling—the sensibility here is rustic-minimalist. The rustic part comes care of hand-worked pine and rope chairs and glazed mugs by Signe Yberg; the minimalist component is offered up by simple Winter Sessions key fobs and woven cotton bedding from Brazil. While the racks are lined with tops and dresses by labels like Kordal and Jesse Kamm, we fell hardest for the home goods.
La Garçonne465 Greenwich St., Tribeca | 646.553.3303
This much-loved e-tailer just opened a bricks-and-mortar outpost—and we couldn’t be more thrilled. Slick and all-white, the loft-y space is dotted with wooden racks, which are filled with all the greatest hits from the site, including cutting-edge tailoring from Yohji Yamamoto, Grecian dresses from Zero + Maria Cornejo, and feminine skirts and dresses from Simone Rocha.
Dover Street Market160 Lexington Ave., Murray Hill | 646.837.7750
Spanning seven narrow stories in Murray Hill (yes, Murray Hill), Dover Street Market is like a fair funhouse for fashion: Every nook, cranny, and balcony is lined with some of the most inspiring shopping set dressing in New York City. You’d expect nothing less from Rei Kawakubo, the founder of Comme des Garçons, who has an eye for the most cutting-edge labels around. Like its counterparts in London and Tokyo, DSM boasts a Rose Bakery, making this the sort of place where you can literally spend five hours.
