Beyond at Liberty View Industrial Plaza: A Brooklyn Parent's Shopping Paradise!
Disclosure: This article was sponsored by Bed Bath & Beyond, but all thoughts and opinions are my own and completely unbiased.
It snuck in and opened up quietly under the radar of most, but Industry City has a brand new shopping mecca that is, in a word, AMAZING!!! The modern, sparkling clean, and oh so impressive Beyond at Liberty View Industrial Plaza in Brooklyn's up-and-coming Industry City (the developing area between Sunset Park and Park Slope, set to become the next DUMBO) is a must visit for Brooklynites and dare I say it worth a trip to the borough for residents of Manhattan and Queens as well? Yeah, it's THAT good!!
It had a large and open feel - don't worry about bringing along your double stroller - no problem! You'll find escelators and elevators, changing tables in the bathrooms, high chairs in the dining area, and free parking (though public transport is easy, too, we took the 3rd Ave B37 from Bay Ridge)! Customer service in Liberty View and each of the shops was top notch. I got asked many times if I needed any help, but in a welcoming way rather than the nagging get-off-my-back kinda way. That, together with the fact that the place is brand new and so super duper swanky, lended to the feeling of an extremely luxurious high end shopping experience, thankfully without prices reflecting that!
Read on to get a taste of what you can expect, how to get there, and a list of nearby attractions to help you make a full day out of it!
Bed Bath & Beyond - From kitchen to bathroom to bedroom and gadgets and gifts galore, NYC's newest "Beyond" goes beyond expectations! One cool surprise is their "Made in Brooklyn" area, featuring locally produced products, a very very nice and unexpected find in by such a large nationwide "big box store"!! While wandering through and browsing the store, I was delighted to get a full cup "sample" from their Nespresso rep (the machine's were on a huge sale!). I'm told by a Beyond rep they will have interactive beverage and vacuum shopping tools for your shopping convenience, pretty nifty!!
buybuy BABY - Whether you're pregnant, have a baby or toddler, or need a gift for a baby shower, this is your one stop shop. They have large and beautiful displays to test out all of the essentials, from strollers to cribs, gliders, pack 'n plays, clothes, etc! Ask for help or just wander around and browse all the goods. You can even set up your baby registry here (which will get you a nice coupon code to buy anything you registered for that isn't gifted to you!). I hear they will also have interactive tools for selecting a stroller or car seat - sounds helpful and kinda fun! I'm not sure if this is something that will be continued, but when we went they had a little play area set up with ride on cars, a kids' house, and a mini trampoline!! It's little touches like these that really make for an outstanding shopping experience, especially with children in tow!
Cost Plus World Market - The name says it all - you'll find home goods and decor from all around the world, a great place to find a fun and unique accent piece for a room or great gift for the person who has it all! You can also find goods from closer to home in their "Locally-Made Brooklyn" section! Personally, I was excited to see their Asian food section, featuring lots of Japanese items we love, such as my son's favorites, Pocky and Panda!
Liberty View also houses Harmon Face Values (discount health & beauty supply store) and Saks OFF 5TH (designer brands at up to 70% off; their only location in Brooklyn!). I'm not sure if any other retailers are planning to jump in, but a girl can dream!!
Eating & Drinking:
The main dining option, Bay Market Kitchen, a "21st Century Food Square", serves up casual American cuisine, and locally brewed draft beer, wine and growlers. Order up front and everything will be brought to your table. High chairs are available, however there is no children's menu (maybe if enough of us whine about it they'll add one?). My 4-year-old devoured their hot dog, which was split open and grilled - much nicer presentation (and more delicious, of course I stole a bite) than your average wiener! I got their mac 'n cheese, after a customer service rep recommended it about 5 times to me LOL. It didn't disappoint!
There are several other snack options in the mall, featuring Brooklyn-based Toby’s Estate Coffee espresso drinks, drip and pour-over coffee and locally-sourced treats and snacks - from soft pretzels to "birthday cake" waffles, paninis, and more!
How to get there:
Located at 850 3rd Avenue (at 31st Street in Brooklyn), Liberty View is a cynch to reach via 3rd Ave's B37 bus, the subway's R line (8 minute walk from 36th St. Station), and by car - they have free parking! The nabe still has a very gritty industrial vibe going on, with the BQE overhead and not many pedestrians or street shops, but you're totally transported once inside the building!

Diamonds are the hardest natural substance known to mankind. They last for several lifetimes making them natural choices for heirloom jewelry. However, diamonds are old timers in today's modern world of new technologies. Even nature's tough skinned jewel can only avoid damage and last forever with proper care.

The use of fashion accessories is one way for you to reflect your personality instead of dominating your entire look. In the case of men, there are not too many choices of accessories as there are in women. However, each component could affect your whole look even in the tiniest of details. An example would be the use of a leather wallet.

Dear usjapanfarm: I'm delighted to hear your comments about our project Beyond at Liberty View, particularly since our architecture studio ZAD (www.zambranoarchitects.com) designed the venue. Just one correction I wanted to suggest: the project is the retail hub of a complex called Liberty View Industrial Plaza, located at 850 Third Avenue. Although a neighbor to Industry City, it is not part of it.

The great thing about walking is that with the exception of people who are severely disabled or those who are amputees almost everyone can walk for exercise. Walking is one of the few fitness regimens that can be shared by all ages which makes it a wonderful way to do things together as a family.

Custom hoodies may offer lots of convenience when you are looking for a quick fix for your wardrobe. However, they don't always match your style needs or preferences and you will be buying to cater to your immediate needs only. But there is really no reason why you should be stuck with a hoodie that you do not love that much.

What do men find attractive? Maddeningly explosive or elegantly presented? Surveys have shown that, most of the men don't find too flashy, trashy or cheesy outfits much of alluring. This is also quite true for lingerie too. My dear ladies, you want to look sexy? Trust me you do not necessarily have to be a daredevil and put on lingerie which might question the most primitive pattern of clothing!
