This week, Jon Caramanica checked out the first Sandro in Brooklyn, which opened this October. Of the location, he writes: "In France, Sandro is near ubiquitous, with a few dozen locations. But this store sits on a forlorn strip across from the Music Hall of Williamsburg that's part undeveloped and part nü-Williamsburg, glass and concrete and steel." However, "the arrival of Sandro presumes a different crowd: more moneyed, less artisanal, more wistful for the Continent." [NYT]
