Pinpoint Bridal, above all else, is a family-run business. The boutique’s main designer, Remziye Perkin, works with her son and niece, Erol and Fatima, respectively. Originally from Turkey, Remziye trained in design at the Fashion Institute of Technology before joining Vera Wang as one of her first seamstresses and tailors. After five years with Vera, Remziye utilized her knowledge of bridal couture to open her own shop in 1995.

Pinpoint Bridal began solely as a tailor, then branched out over the years into mother-of-the-bride outfits, and delightful flower girl dresses. What makes the boutique special, according to Erol, is their practice of creating custom gowns. Visitors come from New York, Dubai and everywhere in between requesting atypical dresses, traditional dresses, and alterations for family heirlooms.

“It’s a neighborhood bar,” commented one loyal patron, “The kind that’s quickly disappearing in our city.” Gene Lennon, the owner of Trinity Pub could not agree more.

As one of the oldest bars in the neighborhood, Trinity is the latest in a long line of drinking establishments that have inhabited the space on 84th Street. The place had been a bar since the 1930s, when it had mostly been run by German and Hungarian immigrants. Lennon, who grew up in the pub business in Ireland, opened Trinity with friends Tommy O’Connor and Billy Fergusen.

A standout mural on the wall depicting three businessmen conferring over their beers depicts Trinity’s greatest strength: providing a gathering space for generations within the community.


This handsome 6-story tenement building, built in 1904, was designed by architect Alfred E. Badt and commissioned by S. Braverman. Most of the building’s architectural details remain, including the stone watertable with geometric details separating the residential and commercial parts of the buildings, as well as columns at the storefronts. Operating in the 1970s, Schubert Hall was one of the many bars that have been in this location.
