North 3rd Street between Wythe and Berry in Williamsburg is turning into its own little shopping micro-neighborhood, what with the relatively recent openings of the Mast Brothers Chocolate Factory, Hollander & Lexer, Book Thug Nation, and little boutique Task. The latter, which opened earlier this fall, carries a small and carefully curated selection of housewares alongside clothing for women and children from brands like Antik Batik, French shoe company Bensimon, and Orla Kiely. The aesthetic is romantic and eco-friendly, exactly what you'd expect from a former corporate designer who quit the business world to follow her dream in Williamsburg.
