The Designer’s Guide to New York

The Designers Guide to New York

This is one of those terrific, wish-I’d-thought-of-that ideas that you can’t help but be charmed by: a neighborhood-by-neighborhood guide to New York City put together by Hyperakt, a design studio in Brooklyn. Each guide is curated by one of the city’s prominent designers or design shops—there are some great names here. The first four are available now, curated by Hyperakt, Wasabi Rabbit, Wildcard’s upstairs neighbors Barrel, and my good friends at OCD The Original Champions of Design. Twenty-two more guides are coming at some point, which raises my only complaint about the project: there’s no email form for those who want to be notified as they’re released. See the project at
