The Brooklyn Rock Shop, a Brooklyn-themed gift and t-shirt shop, has closed its Dean Street location. According to someone involved with the business, the shop got tons of media attention because it was right across the street from the Barclays Center but the foot traffic wasn’t there. So they are moving to Coney Island, most likely by mid-March. They are looking at a space right across from Nathan’s. They also continue to wholesale to Brooklyn stores like Owl and Thistle, Mini Jake and Flying Squirrel. You can keep up with them on their Twitter account.

This three-story-plus-basement brownstone at 101 Macon Street has lots of pretty details and is currently set up as a triplex over a garden-floor rental. There’s a whimsical screen, stained glass, eight very nice late 19th-century mantels, and what looks like two original windows.
