I live in Manhattan and make a point of checking out Open Air Modern's website at least once a week to look for books and furniture. The owner is always respectful and great! When I do go into the shop (I often buy online) the owner, Matthew, makes a point of pulling out a pile of books that are of my interest, fashion photography and midcentury furniture, for me to peruse through. Just a great shop!

What a wonderful resource! I am an architect and always know that I can come to Open Air Modern for source material! My husband is a fashion designer and he gets his source material here too! They have vintage fashion magazines and great contemporary fiction which makes great subway reading! We also just got a great sofa for our country house--it was a wonderful print and fit right in with our aesthetic! What a great deal! We are so lucky to have this store--great deals in the heart of Greenpoint, and only a short walk from Williamsburg!

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
