When you live in Gotham City, you’ve gotta look the part and at the Brooklyn Super Hero Supply Co. you can dress to impress.
If you were a super hero, what would be your secret power? For Bernie, it’d be the ability to spill coffee out of a sealed cup and for Jess it would be sensing a bodega cat from 20 yards away. We may not save anyone, but luckily we’re not called upon too often.
For those with mad super hero skills, you’re going to need to look the part. That’s where the Brooklyn Super Hero Supply Co comes in. Looking more like a villain’s lair, than a super hero’s (perhaps it could compare with the Bat Cave from the original 1960s episodes, this quirky Park Slope outfitter has a few secrets of its own.
Step beyond the bright satin assortment of capes and rows of metal shelving and you may get a glimpse of the secret command center secreted behind a fake shelf. It swings open to reveal a library and creative writing studio to encourage kids.
Volunteers offer tutoring, support and even publishing for budding writers. It’s a popular venue for kids’ parties, creating a cool experience to promote better literacy. Other highlights include a de-villainizer and a mind reading machine.
The Brooklyn Super Hero Supply Co is a brilliant idea, so make sure you buy a shirt, novelty ray gun or that hot pink satin cape – you know it will look killer!
The Brooklyn Super Hero Supply Co. is what it says, but with the addition of a secret library and literacy program.
