where i shop, part 2.

If I am on Orchard Street, which I often am, waiting ten minutes for a single cup of Roasting Plant coffee (it’s that good), I always make sure to pop into the LES Tenement Museum store, which is a veritable treasure trove of good things. There is some requisite jewishness (if you ever wanted a contemporary art menorah, I would direct you here). But also, they have the best selection of history books about NYC—Ric Burns would kvell—and a bunch of surprisingly of-the-minute jewelry from local LES designers, namely Erica Weiner, whose brass necklaces have quickly become a staple of my wardrobe.
