BROOKLYN - Atlantic Avenue has recently become Brooklyn's newest hotspot for unique fashion boutiques, thanks to major growth in the area.

The street used to be a popular destination for antiques, which ushered in furniture and interior designers. The newest trend has become fashion, with local designers opening up boutiques.

Rob Norman, who owns the hip-hop clothing store Planet Brooklyn Academy, says Atlantic Avenue has become a rival to SoHo in Manhattan.

"Seeing the evolution of Atlantic Avenue has been great," says Norman.
