Here in Williamsburg, like in so many other neighborhoods in New York and cities around the world, corporate development is in a perpetual tug of war with independent, locally-owned endeavors. What can we learn from the unlikely survival of places that are unusual and eclectic? We'll be exploring the history behind several Brooklyn staples, allowing you plenty of time to support local businesses!
