Brooklyn Superhero Supply Store

February 19, 2009


The Brooklyn Superhero Supply Store is a front orchestrated by 826NYC, a non-profit organisation that exists to encourage children to write creatively and to inspire teachers to encourage this further.

Within the shop is located a secret door that leads to an area filled up with reading and learning opportunities dedicated to supporting students ages 6-18 with their creative and expository writing skills. 

This appears to be an exceptionally good example of an environment that serves a wonderful idea that combines community interaction with learning and a sense of intrigue and imagination. I recommend you watch the video on their website:

    826NYC is an off-shoot from 826 Valencia started by Dave Eggers of McSweeney’s. His TED talk is very inspiring.
