A minor detour on our tour of things to do, see and make in NYC was last weekend’s “Brooklyn Flea” – not in NYC, but close enough.
This event happens every Sunday, we stopped in on the 13th, tons of old cameras, handmade/remade clothing and my favorite – furniture made from old bowling alleys by Jim Malone.
More about the flea market & more photos.
Brooklyn Flea, the largest outdoor market in New York City, is opening in Fort Greene in April 2008! Every Sunday, starting April 6, the folks at Brownstoner.com, Brooklyn’s best website about real estate and renovation, will bring together top sellers of new and vintage furniture, lighting, records, clothes, jewelry, crafts, and more at a 40,000-square-foot lot at Lafayette and Vanderbilt Avenue in Fort Greene. Located just a block from Dekalb Avenue’s restaurant row and easily accessible by foot, train, bike, or car from every neighborhood in Brooklyn and beyond, Brooklyn Flea will be the weekend destination for bargain-seekers and cool-hunters alike.
