Saturday at the Brooklyn Flea

I have to stop leaving on the weekends.  I LOVE weekends in New York.  This past weekend, we decided to cross something off my summer To-Do list and head over to check out the Brooklyn Flea.  I had also read about DuMont restaurant in the northern part of Williamsburg so we did lunch there first.  My beau had a burger that he says is the BEST. HE'S. EVER. HAD. Big words right? He's had his fair share of highly lauded burgers and declared this one the best yet.  We checked various tips through our social media connections and got the amazing crispy artichokes. It was a great lunch in a not-so-polished part of the city, with an awesome outdoor patio.

 

We then hopped on the G train to the Brooklyn Flea in Fort Greene.  I would have wandered longer if it hadn't been so hot but it's definitely worth a look.  A lot of junk and a few gems-great for crafty types.  Fort Greene is classic Brooklyn with gorgeous brownstones and a fabulous view of the Empire State Building from Fort Greene Park.
