Since 2008, New York Chess & Games has been a borough-wide go-to for all things chess. In addition to selling chess sets and accessories in all shapes, sizes and materials (including handmade marble sets), this Brooklyn fixture offers camps and classes for all ages. Their Chess For Schools program improves cognitive skill development for students from pre-k to high school, while older players can achieve benefits such as enhanced strategic thinking and problem solving in their adult classes.
Fun Fact: Research has proven chess to raise scores on standardized tests, increase I.Q., and dramatically improve emotional intelligence.
