What it is: Park Slope parents will have another space where they can congregate when the Dumbo bookseller opens this Eighth Avenue offshoot. In a nod to the neighborhood’s likely clientele, the new shop will carry plenty of items for children and teens.

Why you should care: Husband-and-wife team Daniel Power and Susanne Konig, who opened the powerHouse Arena in 2006, are neighborhood residents, and they hope to make the space more than just a shop. Though it’s a small storefront, they plan to host a variety of events—including readings, cookbook clubs, and lit groups for kids and young adults. There will also be an upper-level area with toys and gifts for small children, plus a gallery space for exhibitions. In addition to carrying more items for wee customers, the shop will house a larger selection of cookbooks and lifestyle tomes. 1111 Eighth Ave between 11th and 12th Sts, Park Slope, Brooklyn (shop@powerhouseon8th.com). Opens Nov 2.—Amy Plitt
