In a city where 8 million people fight and claw and scratch for their God-given right for their very own 50 square feet of living space, it's no wonder that everyone aspires to have their own piece of The City That Never Sleeps/Shuts Up/Relents.
Lucky for all of us, Bottled Brooklyn has come up with a way everyone can have their own piece of the city without breaking any property laws. They sell premade, presealed tubes filled with "pieces of Brooklyn," a gift that's perfect for people who like sentimental gifts, but aren't willing to actually be sentimental themselves and hand-craft a gift on their own.
Read more about them on You're Welcome (and psst: they also have tubes the other, less worthy boroughs. I wonder how well the Staten Island tubes are selling?).
