lonely planet: guide book review 

many people visiting nyc make it a point to stop by our beacon's closet and we love that. we're happy to be included in one of the best guide books for travelers.

"Twenty-something groovers find this warehouse of vintage clothing part goldmine, part grit. Lots of coats, polyester tops and ’90s-era tees are handily displayed by color, but the sheer mass can take time to conquer. Previously in Wiliamsburg, Beacon's moved to Greenpoint in early 2014."
