A haven of contemporary style, independent designers, and most importantly, affordable prices, can be found right off of the L train. Alter is the ideal shopping trip for crowd pleasers like Jeffrey Campbell, Shades of Grey by Micah Cohen and Kai-Aakmann. It's also a great spot to bring your fave girl, since the women's store is located across the street. So close, yet so far...
Alter, 109 Franklin Street (near Greenpoint Avenue); 718-784-8818.
