A trend and shopping expert and fourth-generation New Yorker’s chic, full-color guide to the best boutiques, shopping routes, restaurants, cafes, and bars in New York City’s “It” borough, highlighting more than 200 favorite destinations and shops for both style-oriented travelers and New Yorkers alike. The fourth most popular travel destination in the world, New York City draws millions of visitors annually, including more than fifty-four million people in 2014 alone. At the center of this white-hot destination is none other than the borough of Brooklyn—the mecca of twenty-first century cool and style. Now, native New Yorker Rachel Felder, a widely published journalist specializing in fashion, beauty, travel, and trends, has created a portable, beautifully designed, personally curated anthology that brings this fashionable borough into focus as never before, featuring not-to-be-missed highlights and covering everything—from food to furniture to fashion—it has to offer. Rachel takes you into some of the borough’s most diverse and charming neighborhoods, including Brooklyn Heights, Park Slope, Williamsburg, Fort Greene, Boerum Hill, Carroll Gardens, Prospect Heights, and DUMBO. She begins with valuable travel advice, including a precisely selected list of hotels, cafes, bars, bakeries, festivals, salons, and markets. She provides a sample itinerary for trip planning, as well as a comprehensive list of Brooklyn’s main attractions—including its major landmarks, parks and gardens, museums and zoos, noteworthy restaurants, bars and breweries, and artisanal food shops. She then takes you into individual neighborhoods, exploring each thoroughly by shop type and goods, providing the complete address, phone number, and website for each. Insider Brooklyn is filled with must-have advice on trendsetting furniture and décor; antiques and vintage; clothing for men, women, and children; jewelry, both affordable and high-end; beauty—makeup, perfume, and salons; health and wellness, including juices, gear, and fitness specialists; children’s goods; stylish kitchen essentials and decorating for the table; unique art and objects; rare oddities and curiosities; and favorite bookstores, specialty grocers, and niche shops. The stores have been chosen with an expert’s eye, including new discoveries, popular mainstays, and neighborhood gems worth visiting. Bursting with invaluable insights, helpful tips, and must-see destinations, Insider Brooklyn is an indispensable resource and a visual feast for tourists and business visitors headed to the city, locals—both Brooklynites and other New Yorkers—and armchair travelers who simply want to dream about and shop it from home.

From Paris to Rio, everyone’s curious about hot, new Brooklyn. The Brooklyn Experience, Ellen Freudenheim’s fourth comprehensive Brooklyn guidebook, offers a true insider’s guide, complete with photographs, itineraries, and insights into one of the most creative, dynamic cities in the modern world. Walk over the Brooklyn Bridge at dawn or sunset, discover thirty-eight unique Brooklyn neighborhoods, and experience the borough like a native. Find out where to go to the beach and to eat great pizza, what to do with the kids, how to enjoy free and cheap activities, and where to savor Brooklyn’s famous cuisines. Visit cool independent shops, greenmarkets, festivals, and delve into the vibrant new cultural scene at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, Barclays Center, and the lively exploding neighborhoods of DUMBO, Williamsburg, and Bushwick. Included in the book are essays and the pithy, sometimes funny comments of sixty cultural, literary, and culinary movers and shakers, culled from exclusive interviews with experts from the James Beard Foundation to the cofounder of the famous Brooklyn Book Festival, as well as MacArthur “genius” award winners, to young entrepreneurs, hipsters, and activists, all of whom have something to say about Brooklyn’s stunning renaissance. Neighborhood profiles are rich in user-friendly information and details, including movies, celebrities, and novels associated with each neighborhood. There are also 800 listings of great restaurants, bars, shops, parks, cultural institutions, and historical sites, complete with contact information. Targeting the independent, curious traveler, The Brooklyn Experience includes a dozen “do-it-yourself” tours, including a visit to Woody Allen’s childhood neighborhood, and amazing Revolutionary and Civil War sites. Freudenheim draws clear—and sometimes surprising—connections between old and new Brooklyn. Written by an author with an astounding knowledge of all Brooklyn has to offer, The Brooklyn Experience will guide both first-time and repeat visitors, and will be a fun resource for Brooklynites who enjoy exploring their own hometown.

The Fashion Insiders’ Guides are carefully curated compendiums of the current hotspots, classic haunts, and hidden gems of the world’s greatest fashion destinations. A former Parisian living in New York, French Vogue correspondent Carole Sabas was often approached by friends and colleagues on their way to Paris for Fashion Week, looking for the best place for a quick facial, early morning yoga, or to meet a friend for a drink. So many people asked, in fact, that she produced a small guide filled with advice, which she gave out for free. Requests for more information and other cities came pouring in. Abrams is now making Sabas’s Paris and New York guides available to everyone, with expanded content including chapters such as “Eating and Drinking,” “Beauty,” “Health,” “Shopping,” “Art,” and an eclectic selection of odds and ends called “Might Be Useful One Day.” Written with a light touch and in a friendly tone, each entry includes a description of the recommended spots with hints about when to go, who to ask for, and what to get, as well as location and contact information. The inclusion of additional advice from local fashion celebrities on their favorite places to frequent puts readers confidently in-the-know.
