Business G&A Park Slope Barber Shop, 203A Garfield

About a month after Warp and Weft closed up shop at 203A Garfield Place, just off 7th Avenue, and new signage is up for G&A Park Slope Barber Shop. We peeked inside and saw a couple barber chairs already inside, but it looks like they’ve still got a bit to do before they open. What do you
Business Inside A. Cheng

As we have been rejoicing in recent style posts, sweater weather is finally upon us, and local boutique A. Cheng has the neighborhood covered-literally! Long a local staple for fun, top-quality women’s wear, designer Alice Cheng has been in the neighborhood for years. Her closely curated shop reminds us of our most fashionable friend’s closet. Not
Animals larissa 1

We ran into this duo walking out of where we were headed: neighborhood supporter of local writers and musicians, our favorite Café Regular. We bonded with Larissa, who works at a start-up, over the cooler weather and sweaters being necessary again. Her vibrant hair and pants were such stand-outs, we couldn’t help but snap some
Neighbors miranda jackson

We met Miranda Jackson at Lucey’s Lounge and she instantaneously made us long for fall fashion. While we’ve enjoyed a constant rotation of easy cut offs as much as the next, her wool thatched Pringle dress had us wanting to go home and pull out all the sweaters in the back of our closet to ready ourselves
Education b2s1

From the packed frozen yogurt shops around lunchtime to the school buses stopping every block on the avenues, back to school season is an adjustment for the whole neighborhood- whether or not you have children of your own. Still, we’d by lying if we said we aren’t inspired in the least bit by some of
Neighbors emilie 2

We spotted Emilie Coleman on 5th Avenue, waiting for Bicycle Habitat to open so she could fix her flat tire. Drawn to her laidback style- the easy romper, the striped bag thrown in her bike’s basket- we found Emilie to exude a certain European sensibility, confidence, and shall we say je ne sais quoi? It’s
Neighbors Pietro Nano LS

I happened upon Pietro Nano in front of  L’Albero dei Gelati, leaning up against his Vespa and eating a cup of gelato. It came as no surprise to find out that he hails from Italy. “That makes me a gelato snob by nature,” he says. “And I can tell you that this stuff is good.”
Neighbors Jessica Doehle

While I snap photos of actress Jessica Doehle, a woman stops to ask how she achieved her bombshell status hair. Jessica gives a step-by-step tutorial to the thankful stranger, later telling me that it happens a lot. I’m not the least bit surprised. At 6 foot sans heels, Jessica is hard to miss. Throw in
Neighbors Clarence face

Bright, floral patterns have been all the rage this summer, but it’s not everyday you see men seizing the opportunity to have fun with such an outrageous statement. Clarence Nathan, owner of sneaker mecca Premium Goods (347 Fifth Avenue), is one of them. Having grown up in Fort Greene “before it was what it is now,”
Neighbors Greg Holden Full

Spotted on 7th Avenue, Greg Holden instantly drew our attention with a classic buttoned up style brought up-to-date by his bright tattoos. “I got this one just last week!” he said, showing off a ship emblazoned with “Aberdeen.” Born in Scotland and raised in Northern England, the singer/songwriter has lived in Park Slope for the past
Style aaron gaines

I ran into graphic designer Aaron Gaines during the height of the heat wave, when everyone on the street was wearing as little clothing as possible. The Texas native- who is in New York working for Black & Black Creative- stood out in his long-sleeve maroon stripes and cuffed yellow pants. When he mentioned he
