Never thought we’d see a mall we’d want to call home in NYC until we met Brookfield Place! Between grilled cheeses from Little Munster, crepes at Le District, working out at Equinox and shopping our faves at Vince, Theory, Burberry, Lululemon. . . this place had us at hello! And it’s not even done yet – more to come! Scoop, Saks Fifth Avenue, L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon! And of course we love the location – on the water in front of the marina. The sundowns are spectacular!
With this new location, we’re aiming to make it easier for our friends in FiDi and BPC, introduce ourselves to the professional crowd and greet travelers, all with a great group of awesome stuff – from indie fashion, amazing gifts (many of which they won’t find anywhere else in the US) to the hottest strollers, furniture and gear! We also wanted to try out a new format of the shop bringing Cribz & Threads together and extend our footprint, taking the opportunity to show new things! Don’t worry, nothing’s changing in Tribeca, we’ll still be there bringing you the best products curated by our off-the-hook buyers, an array of services to make it easier for parents, parents-to-be and gift-givers and the amazing baby brainiac-level knowledge of our Babesta stylists!
If you haven’t been over yet to Babesta at Brookfield Place yet, it’s time. Here are some pics to whet your appetite – we suggest shopping Babesta (as well as our awesome neighbors CosBar, Judith & Charles, Bonobos, and Posman Books & then hitting Hudson Eats for a gooey grilled cheese – tell them we sent you!
We were so excited when we read this review by Cititour! It’s not easy ensuring that everyone is happy and we work hard to ensure that each shopper is given the attention they deserve. We think great service rocks and is the ultimate in luxury.
We’re super stoked to be named Nook’s retailer of the month! We love these mattresses – they’re super comfy and totally redefine what we expect of a mattress. For the month of July, enjoy 10% off your Nook purchases in-store only!
We could not be more stoked to have the privilege of hosting the “Bump Envy” section of Well Rounded NY (our fave city prego site!). A bevy of gorgeous mommies to be (and mommies to be again!) swung by an afternoon not long ago and posed for the site! As you can see they were very stylish & to be sure, several must be welcoming equally stylish babies into the world imminently! View the Stylish Mamas and more here!
We were so stoked to be named on Complex magazine’s list of top mag covers from March 2014. There seemed to be an art vibe in the air! Check out Pranksy alongside of a Magritte inspired Sunday Times, Questlove on Wired and a pretty cool Campbell’s Soup cover. Hard to believe little Pranksy is playing with some of the big boys. )))
We are so excited to have our Spring/Summer 2014 Babesta Beat cover featured on Cover Junkie, a website that highlights only the coolest magazine covers. Banksy, meet Pranksy!
