Head over to the Brooklyn Museum, designed by legendary New York architecture firm McKim, Mead & White (although only one sixth of the project was ever built). Their glass-ceilinged Great Hall has just undergone an ”imaginative makeover” by Brooklyn-based firm Situ Studio, and the new exhibition Thinking Big (through May 29) showcases the latest acquisitions in the museum's design collection.
Hungry again? Go grocery and wine shopping (and, come October, grab a drink and see a show at Radio Bushwick) at the Wyckoff Exchange (22 Wyckoff Avenue), a futuristic building by Andre Kikoski Architect with a movable façade of LED-embedded Corten steel that looks like the Death Star's docking bay.
Of course, you'll need to carry your groceries in something: how about a Brooklyn Skyline tote (by Colleen and Eric)? Or if it makes you feel sheepish to be biking around Brooklyn with an image of the Brooklyn skyline on your bag, you could always send one as a gift to your favorite out-of-towners—they are really beautiful.
