The neighborhood, with its charming tree-lined streets and homegrown nameplates, is on the expansion lists of many domestic and foreign brands. It’s even become a fashion show destination: Alexander Wang held his spring show at the Brooklyn Navy Yard during New York Fashion Week.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
