Plopped on a far corner of busy Flatbush Ave., Junior’s is as renowned for its world-famous cheesecake as it is for its mere survival. The loud red and orange façade–as well as the restaurant behind it–have remained largely unchanged since Junior’s opening day in 1950–and that’s just the way the patrons (a mix of BAM movie-goers, office drones from the Verizon building across the street, and Brooklyn nostalgia-hounds) like it. But for the most part, a trip to Junior’s is simply nostalgia for nostalgia’s sake. The food–classic New York deli, stick-to-your-ribs fare like matzo ball soup and giant 10-ounce burgers and fries–is perfectly passable, but certainly nothing special. Where Junior’s has the competition beat is attitude. That “We were here then, we’re here now, and we’re not going anywhere soon” swagger is what keeps the tourists and locals coming back for more. Oh, and there’s the cheesecake. — Amelie Gillette Brooklyn’s landmark diner opened in 1950, and was restored after nearly being destroyed by a fire in 1981. It remains family-run.

Grab a seat at the L-shaped bar that wraps around the glass-enclosed kitchen, or at one of the wooden booths made of raw cedar.

Located at the prime corner of Wythe Ave and North 10th St. in Williamsburg Brooklyn, this eight-story, 150-room brand new Hotel strikes the perfect pitch between spectacular service and style. The guest rooms are richly tiled-and-textured with authentic reclaimed materials, and the lobby bar and lounge area has a very classy-cozy feel. This mid-winter, the highly anticipated Harvey restaurant by Chef Adam Leonti will make its debut. The Williamsburg Hotel was designed by Michaelis Boyd (Soho House Berlin, Babington House UK) with a nod to the neighborhood’s industrial past by using brick, glass and Corten steel in its construction. The dramatic entrance through cascading stairs leads into a soaring bar whose art installation stops you in your tracks. Street artist Eric Rieger has strung thousands of strands of multi-colored yarn which crowns the bar. Other design highlights include custom toile-inspired wallpaper designed by Beastie Boy Mike Diamond featuring quintessential Brooklyn scenes and figures—from a Nathan’s Famous hot dog to a group of Hasidic Jewish men, to the late, great Notorious B.I.G. Guest rooms feature floor-to-ceiling sliding glass acoustic windows with Manhattan, Brooklyn and East River views, and design schemes vary from white-washed timber walls to deep grey distressed finishes with bespoke leather, brass, marble, and textured details at every turn. Rooms are thoughtfully designed with elements like a sitting table doubling as a tray for room service, open-windowed showers to create a loft-like space. Upgrades available to a room with a terrace with amazing views.

Where else—except, maybe, Madison Square Garden—can you catch Swedish House Mafia and a boxing match, or Alicia Keys, the Ringling Bros., and the Chicago Bulls, all in the same week?

Bieber, Beyoncé, gymnastics tours, and so on get you in the door, but it’s the thoughtful concessions (Fatty ’Cue, Calexico), no-fee ATMs, unnervingly perky staff (trained by the Disney Institute, no less), and modern conveniences like cell-phone-charging stations and free Wi-Fi that keep you coming back.

It started with messenger bags designed with recycled billboard material in a Williamsburg warehouse and developed into a visionary brand dedicated to environmental preservation and a commitment to sustainable design. Although officially co-founded in 1998 by artist Lexy Funk and her partner, the authentic roots of Brooklyn Industries date back to 1991, in Brooklyn, New York. After graduating Magna Cum Laude from Connecticut’s Wesleyan University in 1991, Funk began searching for a way to make a living through her creative endeavors, and ultimately paused in New York where she met her partner who was fervently pursuing the same. The idea was to LIVE, WORK, CREATE, and develop a workplace culture of creativity and independence. Finding inspiration from a vinyl billboard found in a dumpster, Funk and her partner began making recycled billboard messenger bags in an effort to design something unique, practical and innovative for the community. They moved into a one-story 3,000 sq ft factory in Williamsburg with a roof big enough to clean and cut billboards. It was then that they sketched the view of Greenpoint and Manhattan from the factory rooftop that would become the iconic Brooklyn Industries skyline logo.
