brookside homes for sale: New Brookside Shop to Explore: Design in the City - 09/25/17 12:44 PM

 
 
You may have noticed a new shop along 63rd St in Brookside:  Design in the City has moved into the former Reading Reptile location.  This is the second location for Design in the City; the first one is in Briarcliff.
