New Brooklyn Blog: Brooklyn Flea
When our friends at Brownstoner launch an exciting flea market we would naturally expect a blog to come with it. And so it is with the Brooklyn Flea Blog that's just been started by Brownstoner in advance of the April 6 opening of Brooklyn Flea. Brownstoner writes:
With the April 6 launch date of the Brooklyn Flea just over two months away, we've decided to launch a blog that will serve both as a way for you to stay up on news about the Flea and as a way for us to solicit feedback about the many decisions we still have to make. In case you're just tuning in, for the past several months we've been planning to launch what we're hoping will be the biggest and most interesting flea market in the city on the Bishop Loughlin schoolyard on Lafayette Avenue in Fort Greene (map). It's a 40,000-square- foot space, so we've got a lot of room to work with. We use the term "flea market" with both affection and a wink and a nod because, as you'll see from perusing the preliminary vendor list to the right, while the Brooklyn Flea will offer plenty of flea market meat-and-potatoes (vintage clothing, music and furniture), it will also have an exciting mix of local designers, artists and crafties.We look forward to what could truly turn into one of the most interesting and fun weekly retail ventures in Brooklyn, if not all of New York City.
