Spotted On Green Street: Skateboards & Seasoning
Filed under: 11222, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic
Some of you may recall last month the tailor shop located at 173 Green Street relocated across Manhattan Avenue and into a questionably legal situation. Well, Sasteria San Miguel’s space didn’t remain vacant for long.
I present to you, TINC, (as is in: There Is No Cool) a “street wear/vintage variety/skateboard shop. While hardly the skateboarding type (I have grown to accept that I should leave anything with wheels to the experts), I took a peek inside. Here’s what I found!
Hats and Brooklynalia.
Shirts and shoes.
Another skateboard and this really nifty purse. But the item of foremost interest to yours truly was this:
Hot sauce— made by the store owner’s mom*, no less! Naturally I purchased a bottle and am quite eager to try it. Perhaps a review of this product will be forthcoming in the future? Only time will tell. In the meantime you can check out TINC in cyberspace by clicking here.

*Who is a very nice lady. I remember her as being one of the nicer customers the junk shop has had of late. What’s more, I think it is cute that she helped her son, Seth, hang up the sign which graces this storefront!
