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.
Minimize your carbon footprint with organic, upcycled, vintage and salvaged products at this eco-conscious Brooklyn boutique. Owner and curator Kerry Jones has centered her home and body goods shop around a philosophy that promotes sustainability and locally produced wares, as well as positive mood-boosting energy for her customers. Mother Nature–approved items include vintage silk sari throws ($195–$295), reclaimed fabric throw pillows ($55–$95) and handwoven Thai baskets ($30–$175). The jewelry on the premises is thoughtfully chosen for its healing properties, such as Conscious Jewelry by Danna Weiss five-stone chakra necklaces ($375), sterling-silver-plated lapis lazuli necklaces ($190), and hematite and obsidian lariats ($75). The One Well also hopes to boost Greenpoint’s fine-arts scene by hosting receptions the second Friday of every month, featuring works ranging from videos to performance art.
