Our friends are amazed how rarely we cross the river into New York County—usually twice a month, tops. And that’s because we get everything we need right here in Brooklyn: theater from BAM to the Bushwick Starr, movies from the Alpine to Nitehawk, bars from Fifth to Bedford avenues. But it’s not just our fixes for culture and nightlife we satisfy locally. We get all our shopping done here, too. Whether you want chocolate, cheese or coffee; records, books or comics; toys, bikes or notebooks; shoes, jewelry, or prescription glasses, Kings County has a great place to get ‘em. Here are dozens of our favorites so you never have to spend money in Manhattan again.
