If you covet the style of Will Smith in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, then this East Village concept shop is worth searching through. Owner and sports memorabilia collector Michael Spitz takes the stock here seriously, using his childhood bedroom on New York's Long Island as inspiration. The small store is packed with ephemera from the '80s and '90s, including NBA jerseys, snapbacks, Starter jackets, colorful tees and silky bomber jackets in a kaleidoscope of colors. A true boy's bedroom wouldn't be complete without toys, though, and there are plenty here: you might find Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, G.I. Joe and X-Men action figures on any given visit.
