Brooklyn Industries Opens New Shop in Greenpoint
GREENPOINT — Popular retailer Brooklyn Industries has opened another outpost in its namesake borough —smack in the middle of Greenpoint.
The hip clothing and handbag chain debuted a new spot at 658 Manhattan Ave. between Nassau and Norman Avenues late last week, adding to its six existing stores in Brooklyn, including one just a half-mile away on Bedford Avenue.
"These days, Greenpoint is beginning to resemble many of New York’s neighborhoods, where multiple cultures coexist, with a variety of recreational options from restaurants and bars like Five Leaves, The Manhattan Inn, and Enid’s, to great Thai and Mexican restaurants like Ott Thai and Calexico, to summer concerts and movies in McCarren park," a note announcing the opening on the store's website read.
"Additionally, from the rooftop of Brooklyn Industries’ first warehouse on the border of Greenpoint and Williamsburg, the Greenpoint skyline served as a visual inspiration for BKI’s logo. With the new store opening on Manhattan Avenue this week, we’re excited to come back to the neighborhood that gave us our start," the note added.
The 14-year-old chain also has shops in Manhattan, Chicago, Philadelphia, and Portland, Ore.
The shop will have an opening party June 14, That Greenpoint Blog reported.
