• Issue 7: New York

      Take advantage of New Yorkers’ good taste: Shop where they shop. The Brooklyn Flea is a roving market whose location changes by the day and the season (check its website), including an old, gorgeous bank building in downtown Brooklyn. The goods are almost always fantastic: Bentwood chairs; handmade prints by a local artist; stunning New York–made cutting boards for your kitchen. And don’t forget to try the food; from one of the city’s best lobster rolls to a famed porchetta sandwich, it’s tough to go wrong.
