Space Ninety 8, an Urban Outfitters concept store in Williamsburg (Brooklyn)

Space Ninety 8

Williamsburg along with its hipsters is home to great finds, as a matter of fact, I’ve just discovered the Urban Outfitters Urban Store: Space Ninety 8 or Space 98.

Located in the heart of Williamsburg, Space Ninety 8 opened on April 4, 2014 and represents the hip Brooklyn with its creativity, fun objects, clothes and its Slow-Life movement.

Let me explain…

What’s the main concept of Space Ninety 8?

Space Ninety 8 was created by the famous American brand Urban Outfitters and was inspired by the Space 15 Twenty located in Los Angeles (here) also from the same company but with a Brooklyn accent! Here in Williamsburg, they have kept the same building architecture with brick walls, apparent beams and different levels of shopping to create a unique place that represent New York just like the Chelsea Market!!!

What can we find at Space Ninety 8?

We can find some floors with the Urban Outfitters collection and spaces with local designers called the Market Place. The latest can only exhibit their collection for one month only.

In the basement, an entire floor is dedicated to Adidas Originals and starting in May, a rooftop restaurant will open offering a magnificent view on the Williamsburg Bridge and the New York skyline.
