To start, Boerum House & Home is a great place to buy amazingly beautiful and unique things for your home. The project is located in the heart of Boerum Hill, in Brooklyn.

They offer amazing curated collections of meticulously crafted objects from over 130 celebrated Brooklyn designers, makers, and artists. We find this fantastic and we love exploring Brooklyn-based arts and crafts.

Flank, a leading New York City architecture and development company, operates the store. They designed the store similar to a fully furnished apartment. Plus, the project is curated by Partners & Spade – an award-winning creative agency and design studio founded by Andy Spade and Anthony Sperduti.

It’s definitely a place to go and surely you’ll have a tough time figuring out what you should buy first.

Note: This is actually a luxury residential building, where they added this retail concept to enrich the experience. It lasted only a few months.

The history of Boerum Hill:

“A local newspaper urged that Brooklyn “must necessarily become a favorite residence for gentlemen of taste and fortune. For merchants and shopkeepers of every description, for artists, artisans, mechanics, laborers and persons of every trade in society.”

Boerum was named by a family of early Dutch settlers who developed and defended the area during the American Revolution. So, it became home to the many commuting ironworkers who built the Brooklyn Bridge, as well as many of New York’s landmark skyscrapers.

As a satellite community to the city across the river, it has always benefited from five-star influences and tastes.”

More about Flank:

“Founded in 2002, Flank was formed as a design and development firm. They commit to making meaningful contributions to the built environment.

Partners Jon Kully and Mick Walsdorf envisioned a vertically integrated practice that controlled the total real estate process—from concept to programming, architecture, development, marketing, and sales.

Completed work reflects the firm’s commitment to design, livability, and architectural achievement.

Moreover, Flank’s primary focus is on residential and mixed-use condominium buildings in Manhattan and Brooklyn.”

There is nothing more tiring than apartment hunting in New York City. Options are endless, amenities vary immensely and neighborhoods can be confusing. Plus, commuting is always an issue, prices can vary a lot within just a few streets and it seams like an endless process.

We feel exhausted just by writing about it! In this new technological world, it was about time that someone launched a good app to fulfill all these issues!

Movement APP was introduced to the market on May of 2014. It’s a great platform for apartment hunting through a mobile device.

Something that might eventually help to curb the misery of the apartment search experience.

So, after you log into the app, you immediately see a wide range of available apartments!

You’ll be able to see the address, price and bedroom/bathroom count for each to start your research!
