Upstate Stock: Where Brooklyn Meets the Catskills
Upstate Stock is many things: a sun-drenched coffee-shop, an urban-rustic menswear purveyor, an importer of design-conscious products from the Catskills. If you're shopping for the man in your life who can build a campfire and also choose the perfect modern bungalow on Airbnb, look no further.
The store and cafe is located in Brooklyn (at 2 Berry Street, across from McCarren Park), and they sell American-made goods, many of which are produced in the Catskills. They've got everything from grooming products to knit gloves and caps to perfect crew-neck sweatshirts to bottles of maple syrup redolent of wood-smoke. It's heaven for the woodsy-yet-fashionable Brooklyn dweller.
Our upstate wilderness-man friends -- the kind of guys who live in t-shirts from their favorite local bars and remove their well-worn work boots at your doorstep to reveal a pair of mismatched ankle socks -- might not be on the market for a tiny succulent in a triangular concrete planter, but we'd love to take our Catskills readers on a photo tour of this Brooklyn spot.
