Child-free locals will surely greet this new neighborhood baby shop as a sign of evil gentrification. But parents across southern Brooklyn are cheering for owners Grace Tobias and Yvette Hidary. The two moms stock Dimples Baby with colorful plastic dishes from Boon ($7–$10), Holly Aiken diaper bags ($155) and luxurious crib ensembles by Serena & Lily ($500 for a three-piece set). Following the boutique-as-community-center trend, a small section of the store has been designated a play area. 361 Ave U at 1st St, Gravesend, Brooklyn (718-449-2229, dimplesbaby.com).
