New York City is made up of five boroughs: the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island. Each one has enough attractionsâ€”and enough personalityâ€”to be a city all its own. Learn more about them with this guide.
After running her locally sourced accessories and gift shop Honey & Hazel for two years, owner Melissa Gorski had to shut her doors in February 2012 when her family moved to California. Luckily, Gorski found a new owner in friend and former Playboy colleague Bernadette Libonate, who renamed the store and changed up the merchandise. Where Honey & Hazel was girly and craft-inspired, Milly & Earl is more clean and modern, with natural-colored walls and vintage furniture. Inside you’ll find a bounty of well-priced ladies’ accessories, including Brooklyn Rehab lockets with silk-screened images ($32–$44) and Bark printed-cotton circle scarves ($42). For the boys, there are vintage cufflinks ($24) and Izola stainless-steel flasks ($28). Libonate also stocks plenty of Brooklyn-made home and gift items, such as vintage-bicycle-wheel photo holders ($68) and Brooklyn Slate Co. slate cheese boards ($36).
