Zakka

Last week I was freelancing at a studio in Dumbo and I figured it was a good chance to visit Zakka, one of my favorite stores in NYC. I hadn't been there since they moved out of Soho, which was well over a year ago. Their new space is much larger and pretty much paradise for graphic designers, toy collectors, and the magazine obsessed. I think I spent a good hour in there just flipping through books and picking up everything. I definitely recommend visiting if you hoard magazines like I do. They carry some harder to find Japanese titles like FRUITS, Tune, Nylon Japan, and +81, and it's also a good place to find gifts like odd magnets and tote bags. Dumbo might be small, but if you find yourself with some time to kill, it's worth heading down there.
