New York Shopping Guide

Dumbo/Fort Greene/Park Slope

Matter

Before opening Matter in 2003, Jamie Gray studied sculpture at the Pratt Institute, which explains the shop's focus on architecturally minded design. If you see a cool item in a forward-thinking, modern shelter magazine, chances are it's here, whether it's Areaware's wooden bear or slick Alvar Aalto chairs. 405 Broome St. SOHO 212-343-2600; 227 Fifth Ave. PARK SLOPE 718‑230-1150, mattermatters.com

Dossier

As an extension of its brand, this new biannual literary journal decided to open an independent bookstore in Fort Greene this May. And just as the magazine melds fiction with fashion and art, the shelf space not occupied by limited-edition volumes is devoted to prime vintage clothes, Pamela Love claw cuffs, sweaters by Cardigan, and signed Calder prints. 244 DeKalb Ave. FORT GREENE 718-783-0783, dossierjournal.com
