All Dolled Up: Brooklyn transplant Eric Bernstein is bold in his fashion choices 

We simply couldn't ignore Eric Bernstein when we stumbled into him at Drinks X Design at the Guardian Building a couple Thursdays ago. To say this Brooklyn transplant stood out is an understatement. Clearly bold in his fashion choices, Bernstein is also an intrepid entrepreneur. He is the proprietor of an online freelance marketplace start-up called Werkly and splits his time between Detroit and New Orleans. "Why Detroit?" we asked him? Well, it seems this fashionable New Yorker finds the city quite akin to his hometown.

When he isn't rubbing elbows with Detroiters at events like Drinks X Design, Bernstein collects and rides motor scooters. He says he's got six or seven in his collection, including a Honda and a Suzuki.
