In some Brooklyn circles, it’s no longer cool to purchase new clothing, decor, or furniture unless whatever you purchase is…not actually new. If you like vintage gems, shopping and a visit to Brooklyn is in the works, then here are four Brooklyn antique houses to check out during your stay.
Would a pair of retro drapes, a well-aged record player, or an industrial steel coffee table look good in your home? For an eclectic mix of antique wares that will turn your head, and serve a functional purpose, check out this Downtown Brooklyn antique shop. It’s just a three-minute walk from NU Hotel Brooklyn.
