New York City is made up of five boroughs: the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island. Each one has enough attractions—and enough personality—to be a city all its own. Learn more about them with this guide.
This adorable and beloved mom-and-pop kitchenware shop, owned by a local Williamsburg couple (literally mom and pop to a baby named Moxie), features everything you need to make your kitchen complete, including Pyrex dishes, aprons and pot holders, canning supplies, locally made copper cookware, cookbooks, pickling crocks and knives. (They also offer knife sharpening.) If your cooking skills aren't up to par, sign up for one of Brooklyn Kitchen's classes. They offer everything from cake decorating and pig roasting to food-science Fridays, where playing with your food in encouraged.
