This week-end, I discover a great new place so I wanted to share it with you!
The place is Industry City, in Brooklyn (36th Street, subway Station, N,R & D trains!). It is old warehouses that have been entirely renovated to creates ecological and economic spaces. Among these; offices, artists workshops, a great food court in the Chelsea Market style, with all types of food, mexican, noodles, american, french…, there is a great design shop too, WantedDesign, (which is perfect for your holidays shopping) a huge backyard where you can have a lunch in the sun, and places with sofas and billiards tables.
Globally, you can spend the all day there and never get bored! The great news is that WantedDesign and Industry City are having a Holiday Market next week-end, December 9-10-11. Most of the optional gifts that you will find there will be made at Industry City or curated items from the Design Store market including national, international and local brands. It will includes a selection of accessories, jewelry, books, textiles, and home design objects. There will also be food and drinks. I feel that this a nice way to find original gifts for this coming Christmas! And as Final Exams are coming really really soon, it is also great if you are looking for a peaceful and quiet place to work and focus.
Did any of you ever heard of this great place?
