Friends NYC began in 2012 as a friendship pact between sisters-from-different-misters Mary Meyer and Emma Kadar-Penner. The girls made a great duo: Mary's experience as a fashion designer and Emma's knowledge of fashion history + obsession for thrifting united to create the wonderful world of Friends NYC! The store has one mission: to bring super cute clothing, shoes, and accessories at super cute prices to one and all. That's what friendship is all about!
Friends NYC is 2200-square-feet of indie department store retail goodness. We have something for everyone, and carry women's and men's, contemporary and vintage clothing, accessories, and footwear. We also offer a wide selection of gift and home items as well as plenty of paper goods. We love supporting our talented friends, and are chock full of beautiful products from local Brooklyn artists and world-wide designers including Floss Gloss, Lila Rice, Graves, Working Girls, and Stay Home Club. We also carry cool stuff from other cool brands! We have Unif, Jeffrey Campbell, Lazy Oaf, American Deadstock, The Wild Unknown, Cheap Monday, and Levi's.
Run by friends, obsessed with friends, we want to be your friend! We are especially inspired by: club kids, goth kids, grunge kids, and Super Models. And cats. As part of our friendship pact, our prices are super friendly too. BFFs!
