i was worried when i moved from manhattan to brooklyn, that i would feel removed from what seemed like the center of the art/design/fashion world. but now, as a very proud brooklynite, i often feel like i’m a part of an even more exciting design epicenter. brooklyn is home to many of the best stores in new york city, some of them BETTER than anything in manhattan. erie basin, a new store in red hook, is one of those extra-special stores. i read about the new opening on design*sponge, and while driving to fairway for thanksgiving shopping, i spotted it and pulled over to run in. the store is really amazingly beautiful, and i wanted everything. for those of you who can’t make it out to brooklyn, here’s a visual tour!
