halcyon the shop is a dynamic concept space in Dumbo, Brooklyn's über-hot waterfront destination district. "the shop" offers a world class DJ-oriented music store, design boutique and gallery, with roots deep in the talent-rich local community it serves; both as a social networking hub, creative resource and showcase. Dedicated to supporting the underground music, art and fashion that shapes our urban experience, the shop offers an obsessively curated selection of underground, imported and independently released music, focusing on DJ-friendly new and used vinyl, as well as CDs and DVDs. A friendly, knowledgeable staff, and an open listening policy combine to defy the stereotype of the DJ store as an intimidating place, instead encouraging customers to explore the unfamiliar and expand their musical boundaries. Indeed, the shop itself is an invitation to indulge one's creativity. Nestled in the corner unit of a turn-of-the-century industrial building, the shop's floor-to-ceiling glass facade affords beautiful views across a public plaza of the majestic Manhattan Bridge anchorage. Inside, 14' vaulted brick ceilings cap an airy 800 sg ft. space flooded with natural light. Faux grass and bark treatments, edge lit green acrylic accents, re-purposed heart pine cabinetry and pools of loose river rocks set into the floor complete the unique "outside in" environment. Set in this fanciful urban oasis are a constantly changing array of hand screened T-shirts and fashion accessories, art and design books, periodicals and self published 'zines, posters and prints. A gallery wall mounts monthly shows spotlighting local, national and international talent in the graf and street art realm. Beyond "the shop" halcyon produces, co-promotes and provides DJ talent and music programming for a busy calendar of events ranging from local community block parties to underground dance parties in NYC's top club and lounge venues.
