For its tenth anniversary, the L Magazine compiled a list of 12 “New Institutions of Brooklyn, or, the Institutions of New Brooklyn.” They interview the business people behind Videology, n+1, Barcade, the Brick Theater, Enid’s, Gimme! Coffee, Rooftop Films, Crest Hardware, Fornino, Brooklyn Industries, Bushwick Country Club, and Wonk. The owners talk about what lured them to Brooklyn, what long-lost Brooklyn businesses they miss, and favorite spots around the borough. You can read these very interesting, diverse profiles of small business owners right here.
