In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, a slew of temporary stores have opened at the South Street Seaport in place of many still-closed businesses. One such example is this tiny space—less than 150 square feet—which futuristic accessories brand Nooka built from refitted shipping containers to match the mood of rebuilding along the shore. At the Australian retailer’s first U.S. location, shop watches ($119–$375), sunglasses ($129–$275) and fragrances ($5–$80) for both sexes. Highlights include zip-tie leather belts ($49), colorful wallets ($35) and passport cases ($45) and silicone square-faced watches ($119).
