  • Erie Basin 
    388 Van Brunt St., 718-554-6147, Red Hook, Brooklyn
    This is exactly the kind of place you hope to find in up-and-coming neighborhoods like Red Hook. Owner Russell Whitmore has a keen eye for antiques that extends beyond just art deco engagement rings (although there are plenty of those to be had), making it among the best places in the City to look for something decidedly different. The stock is consistently—and pleasantly—surprising. Think Victorian pharaonic brooches and signet rings, colored onyx art deco bracelets, many of which date back to the 19th century. If you have something specific in mind, speak with Mr. Whitmore and he'll do his best to uncover a lost gem for you. (Note: as you might expect from an establishment with such European flair, Erie Basin is closed for the majority of August.)
