Oak's Williamsburg store has resided on N. 8th Street for five years, but they've just let us know that when the lease expires, they'll be relocating to 55 Nassau Avenue. Oak describes the new location, which sits on the edge of McCarren Park on the border of Williamsburg and Greenpoint, as "a quadrant full of life, culture and this precious young energy." So, they seem pretty excited about the move.
There's no date confirmed yet, but the new store will open sometime within the next few weeks. Though the N. 8th location is slightly more convenient subway-wise, taking a stroll along the park to shop things like this tank top and candles that smell like the McKibbin Lofts is A.OK with us.
