ZAGAT Best of Brooklyn 2007

ZAGAT Survey "Best of Brooklyn" 2007 issue came out today! They have a lovely review of Alter in the shopping section. Zagat survey is based on the collective opinions of thousands of local consumers. We are honored to be listed!

If you live in or around Brooklyn or know someone who is coming to visit, this book is a perfect holiday gift. You can buy it at WORD Bookstore ($12.95), just a block away from Alter.


Check out this interview with our boy Justin Tranter of NYC band Semi Precious Weapons (and designer of Fetty Jewelry available at Alter) on TEEN VOUGE site. Thanks for the Alter mention Precious! Here is a bit of the Q & A:
"Your look is completely your own. But are there any particular people who inspire (or have inspired) your style? "Well we are VERY lucky to know Tommy and Roy Couture. They are amazing clothing designers and stylists that have a store in Brooklyn called Alter. They really shaped and created our look.""

NY Gift Guide

Two jewlery designers stocked at ALTER made the cut for the NY Gift Guide Anne Arden McDonal's Sterling Silver Rings, which are unisex, are all hand casted and have beautiful meanings behind each one.

Kendra and her one-off Steel Bracelets are all hand torched creating a very hardcore but yet elegant bracelet.
