Marietta is a family-owned clothing store in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn which was founded in 1940.

We loved its gorgeous #script #signage made of porcelain tiles. When we interviewed the 2nd-generation owner, Giuseppe Chirico in 2009 for our book “Store Front II-A History Preserved”, he told us that when he first started working at the store after he returned home from World War II, “ Most of the clothes we sold were big in size because everyone in the area was Italian and Italians eat a lot! Now, the neighborhood has changed in age (lots of younger people) and size (the younger people are skinny)”.
