Time Out Market: both a magazine and culinary hotspot at once

Sarah Finkel

Time Out, the revolutionary media company known to compile some of the best itineraries for city exploration, has officially launched its third Time Out Market located in Dumbo (55 Water St, Brooklyn)—and it’s already a huge success after having opened barely a month ago.

Following in the footsteps of its Portugal and Miami predecessors, New York’s Time Out Market overlooks the Manhattan skyline with unbeatable views of the East River, garnering plenty of foot traffic in the popular waterfront scene near the Brooklyn Bridge.

Unlike traditional food halls, Time Out Market’s vision was designed by a magazine, rather than a business plan. Some of the most cultured veterans of New York City, a.k.a. the editors of Time Out New York, personally crafted the market’s collection of eateries by wining and dining at an unlimited number of restaurants until their palettes were fully satiated.

Their top picks were consolidated into 21 venues, each of them complementing the other in a meticulously curated mix. Between Israeli chef Meir Adoni’s Nur, authentic Japanese cuisine at Bessou, classic pancake institution Clinton St. Baking Company, and health-conscious vegan spot BKLYN Wild, the hungry New Yorker (or visitor) has a multitude of cuisines and tastes to choose from—all under one roof.

Not only does the 24,000-square-foot market house 21 vendors, it also features a demo cooking area, a video-installation wall, and three bars, with some of the finest cocktails in the game. The communal tables are equipped with leather chairs, and the food is served on real dishware with metal utensils.

A Look At Brooklyn's Newest Boutique Condo, The Symon

Sarah Finkel

The Symon, Brooklyn Height’s newest ground-up, full-service boutique luxury condominium, is slated to open in the fall, boasting private outdoor spaces and three penthouses in a mix of one-to-four bedroom homes. Offering contemporary residences with an elevated design sensibility and an acute attention to detail, the historic and tasteful 12-story building with 59 residences is destined to grace the picturesque streets and beautiful townhouse blocks of the borough.

The Symon Off The MRKT

It’s located at 76 Schermerhorn Street between Court Street and Boerum Place, near Downtown Brooklyn's numerous educational institutions, 13 subway lines, premiere retailers and a plethora of culinary and nightlife options.

Steeped in history, The Symon is a nod to the patriarch of the Schermerhorn family, whose aristocratic mercantile legacy dates back to the 1600s. The family is known for their sense of civic duty and philanthropy as a patron of the arts and of the educational institutions of New York, namely Columbia University. Thus, The Symon celebrates the confluence of both history and culture, and commerce and education.

Studio DB, the New York-based design firm led by husband and wife Damian and Britt Zunino, known for their custom home portfolio and high-end interiors work, has been tapped to design The Symon's interiors (including amenities) and its captivating facade. Lonicera Partners, Orange Management and The Davis Companies are handling its development, while Stribling Marketing Associates is exclusively handling sales and marketing for the building. Pricing has yet to be revealed.
