Welcome to the Burrito Bar & Kitchen! Everything you eat here is made from scratch. The only frozen menu items are the margaritas and the fried ice cream. With psychedelic artwork on the brick walls and Mexican pop songs blasting up and down the sidewalk, Burrito Bar seems poised to turn Flatbush Avenue into a new Seventh Avenue South. The place offers the standard taco-and-burrito fare but also provides a slew of sandwiches, salads, and combo platters such as enchiladas poblanas and carne asada with rice and beans. If seafood is your bag, there’s the fish taco with a mild fruit cocktail flavored by bits of onion. If you’re angling for more than spicy-cheesy, there’s a good range of choices from burgers to wraps to chopped-vegetable salad. Smoothies are named for sixties rock icons. If you think the Bob Dylan, a mix of peanut butter, bananas, and soy milk, sounds strange, don't think twice, it's all right. — Stephen Bracco

Woodland NYC was established in 2012 with the idea of providing a delicious selection of American Cuisine combined with an exquisite dining experience unlike anything of its kind in Brooklyn. This goal was achieved by bringing a talented chef with years of experience under a beautiful vintage venue just down the street from Barclays Center. Woodland is a collaboration between Brendan Spiro of the late Vandaag and chef Merrill Moore, fresh off a stint as head cook at Tulum, Mexico’s Hartwood. The open façade allows diners to feel like they’re eating on the sidewalk while an intimate outdoor garden area feels like a homey backyard. The menu is carefully planned: Dinner starts strong with a varied cocktail list and mixed breads served with walnut bitter cream butter and black Hawaiian salt. Appetizers like mild, easy-slurping oysters, and a pan of smoked baby eggplant with crispy, blackened skins are tasty but the venison tartare is a standout, topped with raw egg and dollops of sharp horseradish crème. Entrée highlights include a tender Riesling-braised rabbit; for red-meat enthusiasts, a robust butler’s steak is enhanced by a sharp béarnaise sauce, extra-large potato wedges, and a dose of sea salt. Desserts like a seasonal fruit crisp and a perfectly formed panna cotta end things in deliciously casual style. — Patrick Coffee

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.

Grand Army Plaza provides the grandest of park entryways in New York City's answer to the Arc de Triomphe in Paris. Conceived as a memorial to the defenders of the Union in the Civil War, the elaborately carved Arch is also a base for a series of inspired bronze sculpture groupings that soar over the Plaza. On the ground, bold statues surround the massive arch, including a noted bust of President John F. Kennedy, and the mythical tableau atop the famous Bailey Fountain.
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? The curatorial flourishes at Brooklyn’s newly minted sports-and-entertainment complex extend well beyond the programming. 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.
In 1857, the Mercantile Library Association of the City of Brooklyn established a library in this neighborhood, succeeded by the Brooklyn Public Library.

Brooklyn Public Library is committed to providing a high level of service to the Brooklyn Heights neighborhood.

Contemporary women's boutique in the heart of Prospect Heights, Brooklyn. We are constantly stocked with a personally edited selection of ready to wear and accessories of both established as well as emerging designers.
Known for her elegant gold necklaces and crystal jewelry sets, Brooklynite Diana Kane decided to accessorize her accessories line in 2002 with other feminine adornments. With that in mind, she’s stocked up on refined undergarments, breezy blouses, and simple dresses alongside her signature high-end trinkets. Cosabella camisoles, Only Hearts tanks, and Lauren Merkin handbags are popular, but less trendy finds abound like the French ballet slippers by Repetto and a powder blue Araks camisole embellished with delicate pleats. (Exaggerated ruffles are not in abundance here.) Kane’s inventory also features environmentally friendly/sustainable companies. Consider a pair of Loomstate jeans, a Stewart + Brown Mongolian cashmere, or even an Edun T. — Christine Lagorio
Kith & Kin. That means friends and family. Kith also means to make known or become known in Old Scottish. When I began thinking about the concept of the store I wanted to keep things tight. I tried to create a friendly and personal environment with the highest quality footwear and attire for any occasion. I want people to come into the store and leave with a dope pair of shoes, and a feeling that they are a part of something special. My crew has been with me since the beginning and understand the importance of building relationships with each new face that walks through the door. “Just us,” that’s the idea. I want to make everyone that works in the store, purchases something in the store, or walks through the door, feel like they belong, and feel like family. My friends are my family. This is KITH.
