Shop owner David Alperin is rooted in his family’s heritage. Being a 4th generation Brooklyn Heights man, he decided to open his new concept shop in the neighborhood and gave it the name of a crustacean that is popular among locals in Galicia, Spain, where his family is from. Goose Barnacle is not just a gallery or a store, but a mixture of both. It is dynamic to what is currently on display, whether it be art or clothing. The 700 sq foot space is open and sparse, hosting biannual art openings in the Fall and Spring.

Hollander & Lexer is a covert sanctuary of unique menswear and accessories located amidst the antique emporiums of Atlantic Avenue in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn. The finely crafted clothing is enhanced by an eccentric atmosphere that can only be compared to it’s sister shop Darr — an interior design vault of curiosities located across the street.

Freemans Sporting Club

Taavo Somer and his partners converted this once dead end alley into a destination for the young and hip. Whether to be fed, groomed or fitted, Freemans has what that neo-dandy is looking for. The shop’s outdoorsy aesthetic is ideal for the sporting gentleman. But of course any man can indulge in that sport coat made from vintage stock wool constructed in Brooklyn or a perfectly tailored suit made to measure. Tucked away in the back of the store is the barbershop. No need for an appointment here it’s all casual. Get a trim, haircut, or straight razors shave the classic way. It’s a great alternative from the higher end shops in Manhattan. After you’ve taken care of all your sartorial and grooming needs make your way back to the end of the alley for some great dining.

Metal doors hide this subterranean boutique, where partners Ryan Turner and Chuck Guarino operate THECAST. Formerly a showroom, THECAST opened in late 2007 with a line of t-shirts that quickly expanded into a full collection, featuring everything from slim tailored wool suits and fitted denim jeans to rock-inspired leather jackets.
