Boerum Hill Shops

Shop neighborhood
City Foundry
365 & 367 Atlantic Ave., Boerum Hill
Sohrab Bakhshi opened his antiques collection shop City Foundry in 2000, becoming a trailblazer in the now established design scene in Brooklyn. The City Foundry collection is comprised of mid-century modern and industrial-influenced furniture, lighting, and artifacts—some of which they rent for staging needs. They also provide custom upholstery and furniture restoration. City Foundry has multiple storefronts on Atlantic Avenue—in addition to their shop, they have a showroom—as well as a separate warehouse location in Prospect Heights, which is by appointment only.

Idlewild Books
249 Warren St., Carroll Gardens
Novels, travel guides, and history books are all jumbled together and categorized by country and region, rather than by author or subject matter at this travel-centric bookstore: The idea is that a book based in a particular place can be the perfect supplement to your trip. As an example, before heading to Istanbul, they suggest you read Orhan Pamuk’s memoir by the same name, to get a real feel for the city. For those prepping for a longer trip or a move, their language classes are a major plus, as they’re taught by native speakers. The original is in the the West Village.
