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.
Brooklyn may not seem like an ideal place for a surf shop (after all, you can't legally surf anywhere in the borough), but Mollusk Surf Shop is legit—its other two locations are in Venice Beach and San Francisco. In addition to all the surf gear and clothing, the shop hosts exclusive film screenings, cookouts and "board exchanges," where you can trade in your used board for store credit toward a new stick.
