“BoCoCa” — AKA, the Brooklyn neighborhoods of Boerum Hill, Cobble Hill and Carroll Gardens — has long attracted a French-speaking and French-loving population, likely influenced by (among other things) the dual language program at area school P.S. 58.

For the Petite Chic Set: Jacadi Paris
Children's clothing company Jacadi Paris, which "provides the world with authentic and timeless children's fashion in the French tradition" recently opened its doors on the area's busy retail corridor Court St. Selling impossibly cute (not to mention tres cher) threads for kids newborn to age 12, it's the place to hit for classic and chic outfits or when the "I'm So Brooklyn" T-shirt isn't going to cut it at the next big family affair.
189 Court St.
