MOUNTAIN opened in Crown Heights last month, and is unlike any other business establishment in the city. Part health food cafe, part holistic health center, MOUNTAIN offers services that are not readily available in the neighborhood.
“We wanted a place where people could be introduced to alternative culture,” said co-owner Justine Lynch. “What i’m hoping is people see this places as a place for balance.”
In a place like New York City, and indeed in most urban environments, getting ahead is often the goal and the inspiration for people, said Lynch. MOUNTAIN, which was seven years in the making, is intended to be an answer to that.
“We’re bridging two gaps,” said Lynch. “Everybody wants good health… and “[this] needs to be a place for peace.”
