Brooklyn’s New Culinary Movement

This time the New York Times got it right about Brooklyn.  The Brooklyn Kitchen is a dreamy store, the owners Taylor and Harry are wonderful, and it’s a great place to take classes like How to Make Kombucha.

Plus, it’s good to read about the growing successes of mom & pop operations and not just their closings, like Jimmy Prince’s Major Prime Meat Market on Mermaid Avenue in Coney Island which opened in 1934 and is closing at the end of the month.

In honor of Jimmy Prince, shop local this weekend and come see our exhibit Counter/Culture: The Disappearing Face of Brooklyn’s Storefronts!
