Things to do in Downtown Brooklyn

Like a closet out of The Arabian Nights, this boutique is stocked with hand-loomed, Indian-inspired textiles and antique jewelry.

A retro dessert parlor with cookies named after the owner’s relatives, and whoopee pies made of cream cheese and pumpkin cake.

A Brooklyn fixture since 1948, this Middle Eastern and Mediterranean market has a wide selection of picnic-ready prepared foods, including luscious taramosalata and flaky spanakopita.
