Bklink: Brace for Brooklyn Flea

Brooklyn Flea, the huge flea market coming from our friends at Brownstoner is set to open on April 6 in Fort Greene "with about 200 vendors selling their wares outside Bishop Loughlin Memorial High School. But don't think of this market as your run-of-the-mill mart, hawking tons of tube socks and old magazines. Brownstoner's Brooklyn Flea will be more like eBay-meets-Kings Plaza on a high school yard. 'I use the phrase ‘flea market 2.0,' meaning it's the next generation flea market,' said Eric Demby, one of the market's organizers and a former communications director for Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz. Demby is working with Jonathan Butler, the flea market mastermind and founder of Brownstoner.com, the blog about Brooklyn real estate and renovations."
