This skateboarder’s safe haven is located in a cozy little shop in Soho. The gear—high-end apparel, such as the Nike SB sneaker line exclusively available in skateboard shops, is sure to send skate rats into a frenzy. Even if you aren’t into skating and enjoy the brand itself, dropping by the store is an experience alone. After working with pioneering designers, musicians, and artists, Supreme has become a cultural landmark that anyone should check out if they are in the NYC area.—Cedric Hall
