Before you get too excited, there’s one more thing you should know. The Brooklyn Superhero Supply Co. is not really a superhero store, but rather a front for a non-profit (youth orientated) creative writing and tutoring centre, 826NYC.
Imagined by Dave Eggers, this concept store much like our favorite superheroes has a dual identity. Like finding the batcave through Wayne Manor, to enter 826NYC, you actually have to enter through a secret passage through a swinging bookcase.
All proceeds from the BBS store fund 826NYC directly, so whenever you’re in Brooklyn, make sure you check it out regardless if you’re a civilian, wannabe superhero or even a villain.
