Stroll through the streets of Brooklyn’s Boutique shops lined with all the trimmings of Fall, front and center. So throw on a few layers and that great fall jacket, and get out there! We’re big fans of fall fashion because those colors and fabrics allow for great creative fusions in the closet!
For the James Dean or “Jane” in you, head over to another favorite for Fall Gear! Jane Motorcycles where you’ll find some of the coolest brands in Motorcycle and tough weather gear and apparel. This place is the “Go2” in Brooklyn for custom Motorcycle riders. They collab with the likes of #BMW because they’ve been recognized to have their own take on what a Biker needs, and you know what…. They’re right. There’s free wifi if you want to sit down for a coffee or sandwich, and Here’s a tip: Your coffee is FREE with any purchase of one of their custom motorcycles. So by the time you’re finished milling over which design to purchase and pay for, that cup of Joe you’ve been sipping on would be on the house! Yep, you heard me! Nothing like the first ride on a new bike after a good cappuccino. Jane Motorcycle is Located: 396 Wythe Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11249
As the cool air beckons us inside we prepare for the holiday of Harvest, when we all get together with our loved ones and give thanks over a delicious feast. And the one who gets the best beverage has bragging rights for the whole year!! So we’re going to help you out!
Whether we’re staying in or going out, you gotta bring that good Vino for this feast. Happy Cork Brooklyn, located at 51 Buffalo Ave. came fresh out the box and set up shop with wonderful reclaimed and repurposed items all throughout the interior decor which made it very warm and earthy. The owner, Sunshine really made it a special place, she was extremely knowledgeable about every wine in the shop and talked highly of all of the local Brooklyn brands she supports at Happy Cork Brooklyn. My faves were Brooklyn’s True Wine Connoisseurs, Cabernet, but OceanHill Apple Brandy and the Organic Domaine Bousquet Malbec looked really good!

Now I know Williamsburg’s got the savory and fun Smorgasburg moving inside and all that, but you’ve gotta have that one spot in pocket, in any hood, ready to pull it out at a moments notice.

Just remember, when you just have to have some #official #HipHop Brooklyn #Gear you’re gonna have to stop at Vinnie’s Styles and the “House Of Brooklyn” on Flatbush, near Barclay Center.
