For our September print issue—the style issue—we sent our photographers to ten Brooklyn neighborhoods (from Greenpoint, to Flatbush, and eight others in between) to document the way Brooklyn is dressing now. Style is different than fashion, and our goal was to capture the highly individual, creative, and inspiring styles representative of the people who sported them, and the spirit of the neighborhoods in which they walked. This is Crown Heights.
