Giant new Atlantic Avenue sporting goods store Upper 90 contains its very own indoor soccer field. "We’re going to do a lot with the turf," manager Zach Rubin tells the Brooklyn Paper. "We’ll be doing demonstrations and mini-games. People will be able to run around in their cleats before they buy them." The shop carries balls, uniforms, and other equipment and offers soccer lessons for Brooklyn's budding Cristiano Ronaldos. [BP]
