We are located near Downtown Brooklyn in the neighborhood of Fort Greene. As additional service to customers we try to stay familiar with the restaurants and other goings-on around here. Just ask. Our shop is open for browsing 24/7 but on-line only. We don't have an open storefront. Who could afford the real estate?
