The New York Times comes to Brooklyn Heights today as part of its Intersection video series. In this piece, long time Heights resident Irwin Susskind (who says he bought one of Nelson Rockefeller’s old suits at a thrift shop) and others talk about their sense of style.
So does that make Susskind our own version of Macklemore?
The NYT piece focuses on Brooklyn Heights as a place with a “Refined Vintage” look. The three people profiled are engaging enough—and they didn’t just stick to youngsters—but repeated shots of Tango and Housing Works made it feel like not a lot of new territory was unearthed. Still, it’s good to see the neighborhood profiled about something it’s not usually known for. Watch the video and let us know what you think. Now if only they’d covered the 5am look of those who come into Happy Days hungry for eggs after a night of debauchery—THAT’S a story.
