Ah, the Brooklyn Flea. We hopped on the 6 and arrived at 10:45am.
The real star of the Brooklyn Flea is the winter location at One Hanson. A former bank, the architectural details were absolutely exquisite! This is a window on the Mezzanine with Art Deco iron details in shadow from outside. Took my breath away!
The vault features a food court filled with amazing artisanal vendors. I had the pork sandwich from Porchetta NYC…divine! http://www.porchettanyc.com/
Prices were good…about 1/2 of standard retail. I did manage to purchase a fun cameo pendant made from old vinyl records from Brooklyn’s Wrecords By Monkey http://www.wrecordsbymonkey.com/
Worth a look for the architectural details of One Hanson alone. But hurry, the flea moves to its outside location April 3rd. This Sunday is your last chance to catch a glimpse of the flea at One Hanson until next year…
