Only NY Opens New Store in Greenpoint
Long a favorite of the city’s massive skater population, Only NY has opened its second New York store in Brooklyn. Located in Greenpoint, the new outpost is aiming to be more than just your run-of-the-mill skate shop — the store wants to emerge as a cultural hub for the skate scene by hosting various events and workshops and carrying exclusive merch. The open layout of the store, which is flooded with natural light thanks to a series of floor-to-ceiling windows, is kept simple. The brand’s signature tees are displayed on racks that line the walls while hats and other accessories are displayed on a table in the center. Air ducts are left exposed, and various paintings mounted on the wall and a natural brick accent wall adds to the store’s neighborhood charm.
Only NY is open now at 49 Franklin Street, NY 11222.
