Without a doubt the best new shop to open in New York City in quite some time. Go to the renovated red brick schoolhouse on the eastern side (!) of Thompkins Square Park (295 East 8th St.) go in through the dilapidated doors climb the short flight of dusty stairs and enter into a pristine, light filled space that immediately conjures up the best of Belgian design. You may recall Ted Wolter's shop at Gansevoort St. from a few years back and before that the East Hampton incarnation but now with Lisa Jackson in tow they have created a shop that's a must see.
