- People of 2Morrow
65 Franklin St., nr. Calyer St., Greenpoint; 718-383-4402
Some vintage stores make you work for your finds, rifling through bins of tatty rags. And the ones that do the sifting themselves charge you for it. This store is neither. Opened in November by a hip husband-and-wife team (he a co-owner of Williamsburg Afro-Brazilian nightclub Bembe; she a florist), People of 2Morrow is as tightly edited as a Chelsea gallery. Over here, a rack hung thoughtfully with glammy American Hustle furs ($58 to $138) and a weather-beaten women’s motorcycle jacket ($88). Over there, mixed in with the secondhand, are new home items like tribal-print tea towels ($36 for four). And, oh, look—a dynamite kids’ section packed with wee pre-loved kimonos ($48), ponchos and Kenzo jumpers (both $38), and a smattering of new toys to boot.

So what exactly does “best” mean in a city with thousands of pizza joints, hundreds of celebrity masseuses, and museum-worthy concept shops on every corner? Well, in the case of this, our annual “Best of New York” roundup, there’s a heavy emphasis on what’s new or what has somehow remained virtually unheard of (until now, of course).
