There is so much to love about this tale of two flower shops in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. One caters to the area’s Hasidic Jewish population (factoid I learned: most Hasidic men buy flowers for their wife every Friday for the Sabbath. I think all men, irregardless of religion should embrace this!) while the other caters to the neighborhood’s growing “hipster” population. What ties the two shops together? They’re both pushing the boundaries of what a bouquet “should” be. This is an idea the Garden embraces in many of our Floral Design classes, and I wish both shops many years of continued success! ~AR

Humans Of New York:
“This one reads like a sitcom plot. Meet Mike and Zelda from Crown Heights. Mike was working as a stay-at-home Dad when he decided to open up a coffee shop on Franklin Ave. He named the coffee shop Little Zelda, after his daughter. Mike and Zelda still spend a lot of time together at the shop. There’s even a growth chart for Zelda on the wall.”

LOVE THIS! Mike and his crew are so friendly, and make a mean cup o’ joe!

We’re so proud of this gem that grew out of our neighborhood at The Vanderbilt. Cheers to this amazing charitable effort!
