New York City is made up of five boroughs: the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island. Each one has enough attractions—and enough personality—to be a city all its own. Learn more about them with this guide.
The Brooklyn Flea has grown exponentially since it started five years ago, and now takes place in Fort Greene on Saturdays and in Williamsburg on the East River waterfront on Sundays. From November 2014 to March 2015, the Flea will be moving its winter installlment to 1000 Dean Street in Crown Heights. Featuring over 100 vendors selling an array of vintage clothing, jewelry, furniture and home décor, as well as gorgeous handmade items and some of the best food in NYC, it’s the perfect way to spend a sunny day this spring or summer. Start the day with a donut from Dough, then sip a homemade cola from Brooklyn Soda Works or cool down with a People’s Pop while you browse the unique vintage and handcrafted treasures. Once you’ve shopped up an appetite, make another stop for brick oven pizza from Pizza Moto’s portable brick oven, a pulled pork sandwich from Porchetta (your dog will get a special treat at this tent, too), or any of the dozens of other equally delectable choices. The vendors vary each week, so be sure to check the vendor layout each Friday at noon for that week's confirmed vendors. For more information, visit brooklynflea.com.
