A few weeks ago my mom and I ventured into that hip, expensive borough known as Brooklyn. I have some Brooklyn roots but Canarsie hasn’t experienced quite the “renewal” other areas have so we stay away from there. Anywho, I was not aware that the day we decided to head to the Brooklyn Flea Market was also the day of the NYC Bike Race. So what should have taken about 30 or 40 minutes, took FOUR AND A HALF HOURS.
Let’s pretend that didn’t happen. The flea market was cute. We went to the indoor one in the old Williamsburg Savings Bank building right across from the Flatbush Avenue LIRR station. Note to self: take the mother-loving train next time. There is also a seasonal market in Fort Greene. All the details are on the website linked above. Cool building, right?
It was less furniture and housewares than I’d hoped, but lots of great jewelry. Outside the bank is a parking lot filled with local food vendors and picnic tables. Maybe the Fort Greene location has more furniture? Not sure.
Hope on the train or grab a sleeping bag and crawl on the BQE and go to the Flea Market some time soon!
