Guess it's Smith Street day here on Racked. Here's a pic of recently-opened skateboard shop Homage, located at 151 Smith Street at Bergen Street. Pretty* in the City, who took the photo, also commented on this morning's Smith Street article. From her blog, "I'm all for a Starbucks coming to the neighborhood (because they make damn good coffee), but I'd hate to see it become completely commercial." Hmm. Why don't you chew on that statement for a moment while we go stick our head in the oven?
