Cover Story Pierre Cardin: Future Fashion Dazzles at Brooklyn’s World-Class Home for Culture BY Merrill lee Girardeau

Image courtesy of Iconic Images. © Terry O’Neill / Iconic Images.

If Brooklyn were a city on its own and not a borough of NYC, it would be the fourth largest metropolis in the U.S. (closing in fast on Chicago for third place). A tourist destination to rival Manhattan, Brooklyn comes complete with its own world-class institution: the Brooklyn Museum. Just 20 minutes from Manhattan you’ll find a priceless collection that will surprise you with its range, from ancient Egypt to European masterpieces to a feast of decorative art.

Raquel Welch in a Pierre Cardin outfit featuring a miniskirt and necklace in blue vinyl, worn with a Plexiglas visor, 1970. Among the museum’s rotating exhibits is the new retrospective Pierre Cardin: Future Fashion. Vistors can experience the past, present, and future of fashion all at once at this up-tempo show. Cardin, the French designer who embodied the Space Age and futuristic concepts in his designs, is a living legend at 97. This is the first retrospective of his life and work hosted in New York for 40 years. It holds over 170 objects, dynamically displayed, collected from the Pierre

24 www.cityguideny.com

Cardin archive, including recent work that feels every bit as vital as Cardin’s historic designs. Cardin’s bold, geometric fashions reflect mid-century advances in technology and industry—most explicitly those connected to space exploration. In fact, on a visit to NASA in 1971, Cardin donned an Apollo 13 astronaut suit and became the only civilian ever to do so! A signature image from the exhibition is a photograph of the actress Raquel Welch modeling a Cardin vinyl miniskirt and necklace, slim black bodysuit, and a Plexiglass visor. Part astronaut, part dancer, this ensemble embodies the playfulness and boundary-pushing use of materials that characterize Cardin’s work (don’t miss the fashion that literally lights up, arrayed in the show’s back room). Other signature designs include Cardin’s “target dress,” felt jumpers with unconventional cutouts, and futuristic white nurse uniforms. Cardin also created popular unisex clothing and menswear like a suit with no collar and “cylinder” pants. A consummate creator and tailor by trade, Pierre Cardin could design a piece of clothing from the initial sketch to the final stitch of a hem. After working for Elsa Schiaparelli and Christian Dior in the 1940s, Cardin began his design house in 1950, first as a costumer, then a couturier. Soon, celebrities like Brigitte Bardot, Lauren Bacall, and Jacqueline Kennedy were wearing Cardin designs, and Mia Farrow and Jeanne Moreau wore his costumes on film. The show also demonstrates how Cardin designed outside the realm of fashion,

A priceless collection that will surprise you with its range...


crafting “couture furniture,” lighting, and even cars. An entrepreneur as well as a creative, Pierre Cardin was among the first European designers to license his name, making him owner and creative head of his company. This also branded Cardin on a range of products, a brilliant marketing strategy that made him a household name. Cardin was the first couture designer to make a prêt-à-porter (“ready-to-wear”) line of clothing that made his aesthetic available to a wider audience. He expanded his base geographically as well, showing in Vietnam, Japan, and China—most notably at his Great Wall of China fashion show in 1979. Mesmerizing clips from this iconic 300-look show are also included in the exhibition. Cardin’s entrepreneurship extends to the restaurant world: he’s owned the Art Nouveau masterpiece Maxim’s de Paris

since 1981. For the exhibition’s run, the museum’s full-service restaurant The Norm will morph into an outpost of Maxim’s. Look for a French-forward a la carte menu, as well as a very affordable ($45) prix fixe inspired by the cookbook Chez Maxim’s: Secrets and Recipes from the World’s Most Famous Restaurant. Another great reason to visit the Brooklyn Museum is its location at a welcoming hub of tourism. Prospect Park, designed by the same team that created Central Park— after they’d learned from their mistakes—is just down the block, complete with waterfalls and a zoo. BAM, Barclays, and boutiques are also close at hand, and right next door is the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, with over 50 acres of natural life; entry is available at a discounted rate through the Art & Garden combo ticket.

The Brooklyn Museum is located at 200 Eastern Pkwy. (Washington Ave.); call 718-638-5000 or visit brooklynmuseum.org for more details. Admission to Pierre Cardin: Future Fashion is by timed ticket; advanced reservations are recommended.

But once in a very blue—probably cerulean or cobalt—moon comes a production aimed at children that offers all of the above and umpteen more check marks...check marks that let loose 21st-century pop culture goodies (graphic novels, web series, escape rooms, video games, etc.) and toss in live actors, a propulsive storyline, and creative problem solving for an all-immersive theatrical experience.

Leap into a ball pit, swing on a chandelier, and jump out of a cake, all while sipping your new favorite Rosé. Rosé Mansion is an amusement park dedicated to Rosé wine! Dig into the culture, history, and science of this magical pink drink. We feature 120 types of Rosé, tacos, salads, and guac from Taco Dumbo, cabanas, photobooths, and other fun surprises!

Broadway’s Bright New Season Takes Off!

By GRIFFIN MILLER

The fast, the fun, the fabulous, and the furious are coming together over the next few weeks for one of Broadway’s most eclectic season kickoffs ever. From Derren Brown’s mind-boggling mind reading in his Derren Brown: Secret, to Lin-Manuel Miranda, Thomas Kail, and Anthony Veneziale’s improvised hip-hop show, Freestyle Love Supreme, to Oscar nominee Jake Gyllenhaal and Tony nominee Tom Sturridge’s critically acclaimed performances in Sea Wall/A Life, theatre in the Big Apple right now is a head-rush of cosmic extremes.

Oscar nominee Jake Gyllenhaal teams up with Tony nominee Tom Sturridge in Sea Wall/A Life. Adding a historic edge to this fall’s Broadway bouillabaisse is Robert Schenkkan’s The Great Society, the second of his LBJ plays, the first being his Tony-winning All the Way (2014) with Bryan Cranston, who picked up his first Tony playing Lyndon Johnson. This time around, Emmy winner Brian Cox plays the 36th POTUS, alongside Tony nominees Richard Thomas (Hubert Humphrey), Marc Kudisch (Richard Daley), and Bryce Pinkham (Robert Kennedy), with Tony winner Frank Wood (Side Man) playing Senator Everett Dirksen. Meanwhile, a couple of theatre icons— Olivier Award winner Eileen Atkins (Doubt; The Retreat From Moscow) and Olivier and Tony winner Jonathan Pryce (Miss Saigon; Game of Thrones)—are taking over the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre starting 9/10 for a limited U.S. run in the acclaimed British import The Height of the Storm. Of course, these new shows are only part of Broadway’s sparkling present, what with three dazzling Disney productions—The Lion

@cityguideny

King, Aladdin, and Frozen—and long-running favorites like The Phantom of the Opera and Chicago. And then there are Broadway’s newer hits like Ain’t Too Proud—The Life and Times of the Temptations, Tootsie, and Beetlejuice, which you may have met for the first time in June while watching this year’s Tony Awards. Like there can be too much awesome theatre in New York…I don’t think so!

HITTING THE OFF SWITCH Taking stock of some of Broadway’s biggest success stories over the past few years, I discovered that many Tony-winning musicals and award-winning plays cut their teeth, not during out-of-town previews, but here in Manhattan in Off-Broadway houses. Often, as it happens, their move Off to On took place within months. For example, Hamilton debuted at The Public Theater in February, 2015 and moved uptown the following August. Brooklyn’s St. Ann’s Warehouse gave the Tony-winning revival of Oklahoma! the wherewithal to strut its untraditional stuff not long before it packed up its guitars, denim, and chili pots for midtown’s Circle in the Square; and red-hot Dear Evan Hansen arrived at Second Stage’s Tony Kiser Theatre in the spring of 2016; by December it was wowing audiences at Broadway’s Music Box. Granted, sometimes there’s a bit more distance between opening nights, like in the case of this year’s Tony-winning Best Musical, Hadestown, which ran at the New York Theatre Workshop (a formidable Broadway incubator) in 2016, but didn’t make its official Walter Kerr debut until April, 2019. Another NYTW alum, What the Constitution Means to Me, only took four months to make the transition, but the show—Heidi Shreck’s smart and funny autobiographical spinoff— actually premiered in Gotham at Clubbed Thumb’s Summerworks festival in 2017. The fall already can boast two shows with Off-Broadway roots: Sea Wall/A Life made its beeline to Broadway after opening at The Public in February, while the critically lauded drama Slave Play (opening 9/10 at the Golden Theatre), closed at the NYTW in January.

REVIEWER’S BEAT: MOULIN ROUGE!

t

In the weeks leading up to Moulin Rouge!’s Broadway debut the yowza buzz was robust. Rapturous even. And considering the ravishing welcoming committee flanking the Hirschfeld Theatre’s revamped stage—an uninhibited gaggle of buff, brassy, persuasive performers, their thongs and spandex pants topped with vintagesque corsets and topcoats—yowza is an understatement. 1899 meets 2019, with the lush costume mash-up by Catherine Zuber and killer scenic design by Derek McLane elevating a semi-surreal homage to the legendary Parisian nightclub to intoxicating heights. This freewheeling pre-show introduction is just the appetizer to the opening number: a thrilling tsunami of musical, physical, and visual pyrotechnics led by a rouged and ebullient Danny Burstein as Harold Zidler, part emcee, part ringmaster, part heart and soul of the Moulin Rouge which, we are told, is wallowing in a fiscal sinkhole. Hope is wrapped up in potential backing by the sinister Duke of Monroth (Tam Mutu), so Zidler calls upon the show’s beautiful—albeit riddled with consumption—star, Satine (Karen Olivo), to save Moulin Rouge by dipping into her seductive bag of tricks. Naturally, things get muddled when Satine falls for the starving young American playwright Christian (Aaron Tveit), initially mistaking him for the Duke. The two lovers, along with Christian’s newfound sidekicks, Latin lover/tango dancer Santiago (Ricky Rojas) and artist Toulouse-Lautrec (Sahr Ngaujah), contrive to mount a new show that (hypothetically) will save the Moulin Rouge. The musical is inspired by the 2001 film of the same name, which director Baz Luhrmann modeled after the legendary

fin de siècle club where struggling artists, courtesans, the hoi polloi, and the wealthy mingled lavishly in a world of Champagne, can-can dancers, a giant-sized elephant, velvet banquettes, and entertainers like Le Chocolat. But where Luhrmann’s visionary decision to amplify the Belle Époque backdrop with contemporary music and choreography left off, the triumphant coming together on Broadway of director Alex Timbers, choreographer Sonya Tayeh, and Justin Levine (music supervision, orchestrations, arrangements, and additional lyrics), pushes the initial concept to the stars. Theatrics run from sophisticated to idyllic to camp; dance numbers from Bob Fosse to Busby Berkeley to Jerome Robbins to Cirque du Soleil; but most of all it’s the expanded score that takes the handful of numbers introduced in the film and turns them into an almost operatic score of 20th and 21st century (mostly the latter) songs, so deliciously diverse and flowing so gorgeously into each other that even the most jaded jukebox musical critic can’t help but be enthralled. The actors dazzle as they deliver these wonderfully orchestrated numbers, including Burstein’s Cab Calloway; Olivo’s unforgettable shifting of gears from Monroe to Madonna to Beyoncé, and Tveit’s pitch-perfect “Rolling in the Deep.” And “Lady Marmalade”…I mean, come on. For the 2½ hours you’re tucked away from the world at Moulin Rouge!, you’re “…gonna live like tomorrow doesn’t exist.”

Matthew Murphy

On the flip side of this capricious algorithm are a couple of former Broadway productions that are now major must-sees at New World Stages: 2006’s Best Musical Tony winner, Jersey Boys, and the Olivier-winning farce The Play That Goes Wrong—both of which morphed from On to Off shortly after leaving the Great White Way.

The hit show tells the story of a small-town girl, a city boy, and a rock ‘n’ roll romance on the Sunset Strip. But when the bar where rock reigns supreme is set to be demolished, it’s up to these wannabe rockers and their band of friends to save the day. The show’s score features such ‘80s rock anthems and power ballads as “Every Rose Has Its Thorn,” “I Wanna Know What Love Is,” “Here I Go Again,” and “Don’t Stop Believin’.” Call or visit website for playing schedule.

In this solo play, an actress picks up script and reads disturbing and haunting accounts of the murder of thousands of women in Juarez, Mexico, and a playwright’s journey of discovery. As lines blur between theatricality and reality, provocative questions are raised, demanding deeper examination. Call or visit website for playing schedule. (Thru 8/18)

A Contemporary Take on the Steakhouse: American Cut

BY Merrill lee Girardeau

After the rave reviews that accompanied his eponymous Tribeca restaurant, Chef Marc Forgione has made a name in the world of steakhouses as well. At American Cut’s locations in Tribeca and Midtown East, classic New York elegance is matched with the chef’s 21st-century sensibilities. Both dining rooms are designed with Art Deco elements and filled with polished servers carving steak and torching Baked Alaska. But you won’t find any stodgy steakhouse cuisine here. Forgione crafts tongue-in-cheek takes and puts a fusion spin on surf ‘n’ turf.

DINNER & A SHOW. At American Cut, you’ll get the finest ingredients and the fullest flavors, prepared with panache. All steaks are certified Black Angus and come from Creekstone Farms. These exceptional steaks range from tender filet mignon medallions to the powerful 52-ounce porterhouse drizzled with bone marrow butter. The Pastrami Ribeye stands out with its classic New York flavors, joined by specialty cuts like top-of-the-line Wagyu beef. Steaks can be customized with sauces like chimichurri and toppings like bone marrow, blue cheese, or foie gras. There are plenty of seafood options, but none more famous than Chef Forgione’s Chili Lobster, a dish he imported from restaurant Marc Forgione. Don’t miss the spicy Southeast Asian sauce matched with Texas toast, and remember you can pair any steak with this dish. Seafood starters include octopus with Marcona almond romesco and celery salsa verde, or baked oysters with champagne, black truffle, and Crucolo cheese. Many signature dishes, like the Caesar salad and flambé steaks, are made to order right in front of you with tableside presenta-

tion. In fact, at American Cut’s midtown location, you can enjoy an entire meal prepared tableside on Saturdays (they’re closed on Sundays). Check out their Tableside Prix Fixe Menu to whet your appetite. Spoiler alert: the cacio e pepe is prepared in a wheel of Parmigiano-Reggiano!

HAPPY HOURS + DRINKS. Beverage possibilities range from craft cocktails to fine domestic varietals in the wine cellar. Both New York locations are winners of Wine Spectator’s coveted 2019 Best of Award of Excellence. Come for Happy Hour (Monday through Saturday, 5-7:30pm, at both NYC locations) to sample a select wine of the day ($8) or the bar’s standout Plank-Smoked Old Fashioned ($10), made by scorching maple wood and filling a glass with the smoke. Bites like The Big Marc burger and Bang Bang Shrimp, not available on the dinner menu, are also worth the early-evening trip.

COMPLIMENTS TO THE CHEF. Chef Marc Forgione won The Next Iron Chef in 2010. At that time he was the youngest Iron Chef in history at 31 years old. In addition to stints in world-class kitchens here and abroad, he also trained under his father Larry Forgione, who ran the successful restaurant An American Place in New York City for many years. Restaurant Marc Forgione received two Michelin stars, and the chef himself has gathered much acclaim for his fearless culinary creations. Stop into an American Cut and you’ll see why!

New York Dining: New Tastes and Classic Faves From local seafood to timeless steakhouses to contemporary creative kitchens, New York’s restaurants are serving some of the world’s finest food.

HEARTLAND BREWERY From three convenient locations in midtown (including spin-off HB Burger), Heartland Brewery offers handcrafted beers and hearty American cuisine (they’ve been brewing New York’s freshest craft beers since 1995.) Stop in and grab a pint of their award-winning craft beer or take a growler to go. You’ll find a relaxing, casual atmosphere for pre-theater lunch and dinner, or a great place to take a break before tackling Times Square or climbing the Empire State Building. Fan favorite Summertime Apricot Ale, light and fruity with a bouquet of fresh apricots, is on tap through Labor Day. Empire State Building: 350 Fifth Ave. (34th St.), 212-563-3433; Heartland Brewery & Chophouse | HB Burger: 127 W. 43rd St. (btw. Sixth & Seventh Aves.), 646-366-0235, heartlandbrewery.com

SUZUKI

Be transported at the elegant midtown kaiseki restaurant Suzuki. It’s always exciting to open up a new frontier of experience, like the Japanese haute cuisine known as kaiseki. Midtown destination Suzuki is one of the few places in New York to offer kaiseki, showcasing menus of eight or more interconnected courses. The beauty of the presentations works like a frame on a painting, heightening appreciation for the craft on display. (A sushi counter in back, Satsuki, is helmed by Toshio Suzuki, who helped introduce sushi to the U.S.) 114 W. 47th St. (btw. Sixth & Seventh Aves.), 212-278-0010 (Suzuki), 212-278-0047 (Satsuki), suzukinyc.com

CAffé PALERMO Authentic Italian in the Four Season Garden at Villa Mosconi.

t

Villa Mosconi keeps true to its authentic Italian origins thanks to Chef Pietro Mosconi, who’s on the board of the Chef de Cuisine Association. Mosconi’s traditional dishes are served in three dining areas, including a sun-drenched Four Season Garden.

When you’re ready for a sweet ending to Little Italy adventures, Caffé Palermo is your destination. Here since 1973, this must-stop downtown legend is hosted by Baby John, The Cannoli King. His cannolis keep to that perfect balance between sweet cream and satisfying crunch, making these the best in the city. You’ll also find the finest Italian pastries: cheesecake, tiramisu, Italian cookies, lobster

Insider’s Guide brooklyn A Golden Moment for Tourism in Brooklyn

Justin Kiner/Flickr

By ETHAN WOLFF

Epic river and bridge views await in Dumbo, Brooklyn—home to the restored masterpiece Jane’s Carousel. Distinctiveness and authenticity are two of the most appealing qualities of New York City. To find both of these qualities in concentrated form, more and more visitors are looking across the East River to Brooklyn. If it were a city on its own and not a part of New York, Brooklyn would be the fourth-largest in the country (it will pass Chicago for slot number three within the next couple of years). Although it’s a quick trip by boat, car, or train from Manhattan, you’ll find Brooklyn has evolved its own unique feel, evident in its food, drink, music, theater, art, and style. Dozens of new hotels have been added to the Brooklyn mix, joined by bigleague sports, big-time concerts, and nine restaurants impressive enough to hold 2019 Michelin stars. Over 60 performing, visual, and media arts organizations call the new Brooklyn Cultural District home, including the Brooklyn Academy of Music, the Theater for a New Audience, and BRIC Arts. Nearby is St. Ann’s Warehouse and a burgeoning waterfront hub in Dumbo. Further afield you’ll find Kings Theatre, an Art Deco palace that still sparkles from its $95 million renovation. At the end of the borough, classic destination Coney Island is still going strong, with a major new attraction in the 115 marine species that swim through the just-opened Ocean Wonders: Sharks! exhibit

@cityguideny

at the New York Aquarium. Brooklyn has its own world-class cultural institution, too: the Brooklyn Museum. Just 20 minutes from Manhattan you’ll find a priceless collection waiting to surprise you with its range, from ancient Egypt to European masterpieces to a feast of decorative art. The museum’s Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art is the first public space of its kind in the U.S. You can spend hours losing yourself in the 23 American period rooms, which include one of the city’s original homes, the Jans Martense Schenck House, which has been a part of Brooklyn since 1676. Right across the way is the expansive escape of the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. Even in the off-season, you’ll find lovely acres for strolling, and indoor conservatories that show off the diversity of aquatic, desert, tropical, and warm temperate environments. Prospect Park is next door, designed by the same master planners that made Central Park—only they learned from their mistakes there when it came time to create the Brooklyn version. In addition to rolling hills and waterfalls, there’s a charming zoo.

New attractions and unique experiences...

@cityguideny

@cityguidenyc


Brooklyn has long been a destination for fine dining, but never more so than today. Drawing on the high standard set by pioneers like The River Café, establishments from Greenpoint to Bay Ridge are attracting ever higher numbers of travelers. Williamsburg and Fort Greene have vibrant nightlife scenes known worldwide—it’s no wonder rents in both places have begun to eclipse Manhattan’s. If you pay a visit to Brooklyn, you’ll probably want to limit yourself to a neighborhood or two—the borough is too sprawling to take in as a whole without several days (see the next page for more on the key neighborhoods). One option is to walk the Brooklyn Bridge from lower Manhattan, which will drop you off at the cusp of Brooklyn Heights (historic houses, great views) and Dumbo (more great views, park access, and Jane’s Carousel, a restored 1922 carousel right on the water). For a more avant-garde scene, Williamsburg is the place to go. Art galleries, music venues, and pioneering bars and restaurants proliferate here. The area’s creative scene spills over into neighboring Greenpoint and Bushwick. There’s great shopping in Downtown Brooklyn, which has several big retailers, not too far from showpiece new stadium Barclays Center. You can catch a world tour here, kids’ programming, or professional basketball with the Brooklyn Nets and professional hockey with the New York Islanders (they split their home games between Brooklyn and Long Island). For smaller-scale Brooklyn, the combined neighborhoods of Boerum Hill, Cobble Hill, and Carroll Gardens (sometimes known as BoCoCa) have well-preserved vintage streets and tons of boutique shopping. Park Slope has a similar appeal, with plenty of bars, restaurants, and coffee shops when you need a quick pick-me-up. This is a golden moment for Brooklyn tourism, the borough welcoming guests with new attractions, unique experiences, and ready accessibility. For visitors seeking out the Brooklyn version of “the real New York,” there’s never been a better time.

GettinG tO BrOOklyn BY BOAT. New York Water Taxi offers regular ferry service to Brooklyn, leaving from three piers in Manhattan (42nd Street in midtown and Battery Park and the South Street Seaport downtown) and connecting to Dumbo on the Brooklyn waterfront. As a bonus, the ride from midtown features up-close views of the Statue of Liberty! If you’re looking for more great views— and a little shopping thrown in— New York Water Taxi also runs a daily shuttle from Wall Street’s Pier 11 in Manhattan to IKEA Brooklyn in the Red Hook neighborhood.

BY SUBWAY. Extensive subway coverage connects Brooklyn with Manhattan (you can reach Brooklyn from Queens, but with much less connectivity). Major Subway Options for Visitors: The J M Z and L lines connect to Williamsburg and Bushwick. The B D N Q lines connect to Downtown Brooklyn, Park Slope, and Prospect Heights, ending at Coney Island. The 2 3 and A C trains connect to Brooklyn Heights and Downtown Brooklyn. The 2 3 also provides service to the Brooklyn Museum, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, and Prospect Park. The 4 5 train provides service to Downtown Brooklyn. The F train connects to Dumbo, Downtown Brooklyn, BoCoCa, Park Slope, and out to Coney Island. The G train does not travel to Manhattan, but it does connect Greenpoint with Williamsburg, Downtown Brooklyn, BoCoCa, and Park Slope. (It also connects with Long Island City in Queens.)

Insider’s Guide brooklyn Key Neighborhoods in Brooklyn

Jim.henderson

Brooklyn is home to vibrant communities. Here’s a guide to some great destination neighborhoods, each with its own character, culture, and favorite pizza parlor.

Brooklyn Borough Hall, at the center of the American success story that is Brooklyn.

Downtown Brooklyn As the name suggests, Downtown Brooklyn is the business district of the borough, home to municipal buildings (none lovelier than the 19th-century Borough Hall), offices, residences, and lots of shopping. To that end, hit Nordstrom Rack and Century 21 for deals on designer goods and Fulton Mall for outlets and other shopping. Located above Century 21 in the City Point building, Alamo Drafthouse gives you a multiplex experience with full meals and drinks at your seat, while the basement bursts with local food vendors at DeKalb Market Hall. Visit Livingston Manor for excellent craft cocktails and the plaza of MetroTech Commons for rotating art exhibitions and live music. The original outpost of Junior’s, a diner that’s home to

the “World’s Most Fabulous Cheesecake,” is nearby on Flatbush Avenue.

williamsBurg One of the borough’s best-known and most crowded areas, the waterfront portion boasts the brand-new Domino Park, luxury apartment buildings, and trendy bars and restaurants. There’s even an Apple store on busy Bedford Avenue! Check out the vintage shops lining Bedford as well (take a detour to Artists & Fleas on North 7th); you can dance a little, bowl a little at nearby Brooklyn Bowl. You can also watch an indie film and eat a burger simultaneously at Nitehawk Cinema.

ProsPect HeigHts A spoke around the hub of Prospect Park, Prospect Heights is sandwiched between Park Slope and Crown Heights on the north end of the gigantic green space after which it’s named. If you’re checking out Prospect Park for the first time, you’ll want to enter the park through Grand Army Plaza at Flatbush Avenue, where the lovely Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Arch ushers in visitors with some pomp and circumstance. Taste Iranian barbari bread with yogurt dip at Sofreh; prosciutto-fig pizza at Amorina; Weather Up’s dependable craft cocktails; and the country’s best chocolate cake (according to Food & Wine, at least) at Little Cupcake Bakeshop.

Park sloPe Aptly named, Park Slope sits on the gradual hill to the west of Brooklyn’s Prospect Park backyard. The neighborhood is full of beautiful historical brownstones (head down Prospect Park West and you’ll see what

we mean), lots of families, and community treasures like bar/comedy club Union Hall and ever-fabulous no-reservations Italian bistro Al Di La. This restaurant is located on the main drag of the neighborhood: Fifth Avenue. Its northernmost point is Barclays Center, a massive performance space, sports arena, and transit hub, while farther south you’ll find shops like consignment haven Beacon’s Closet and the Brooklyn Superhero Supply Co. for caped crusaders-in-training. Discover new reads at Community Bookstore, omakase sushi at Sushi Katsuei, and lip-smacking Asian fusion at Talde.

BoCoCa BoCoCa is better known as three separate, neighboring areas: Boerum Hill, Cobble Hill, and Carroll Gardens. BoCoCa is bordered to the east by Park Slope, to the south by Red Hook and Gowanus, and to the north by Brooklyn Heights and Downtown Brooklyn. With the area’s booming real estate and tourism have come a flood of new businesses. For the best of the neighborhood, walk down Atlantic Avenue toward the water, where you’ll find fine locally made clothing at Kaight, as well as must-try “pitzas” and falafel at Bedouin Tent. You’ll find more shopping and great food on Smith Street. Start with brunch at Cafe Luluc. Browse at Woods Grove, Modern Anthology, Article&, and Books Are Magic. Wind down the day at the tiki bar Zombie Hut. A historically Italian neighborhood, Carroll Gardens boasts Jay-Z and Beyonce’s favorite pizza at Lucali.

fixtures like the vintage Jane’s Carousel, a working carousel nearly a century old.

Brooklyn HeigHts If you’re going to walk any Brooklyn neighborhood, walk Brooklyn Heights. This coveted corner just south of the Brooklyn Bridge and north of BoCoCa inspires endless oohs and aahs with its impeccable streets full of cheery window boxes, historical homes, and shady trees. Former residents include Truman Capote (70 Willow St.) and Norman Mailer (142 Columbia Heights). Take a tour of the Brooklyn Historical Society, a small museum housed in an 1881 structure replete with a gorgeous library. You can learn about the subway and bus systems of the city at the New York Transit Museum. You’ll find the most noteworthy businesses on Montague Street, including Dellarocco’s Wood Fired Pizza. Make your way over to the Brooklyn Heights Promenade for stunning skyline views of Manhattan’s southern tip. new Jersey

DUMBo Dumbo stretches between the bases of the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges (the nabe’s acronym stands for Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass). A former manufacturing area on the East River, Dumbo slowly gained traffic with the Michelin-starred restaurant with a million-dollar view: The River Café. A vibrant community has sprung up, including pizza parlors Grimaldi’s and Juliana’s. (Grimaldi’s is more popular, but many argue Juliana’s has the better pies.) Brooklyn Bridge Park is the site of endless photo ops with the Manhattan skyline and two bridges in the background, as well as
