Seen at the Flea: Eva and Bella, Dear Friends at the Hell’s Kitchen Flea
What a beautiful weekend to spend enjoying the spring weather. Many markets are now open for the season, and we have one grand opening this weekend in the Village! It’s also the last weekend to visit the Brooklyn Flea and Smorgasburg in their great indoor space because next week they open their markets outdoors!
It’s also a great weekend to hop on the train to Coney Island because it’s the first day of the 2016 Beach Season! If you take the Q train, stop off to visit the Cortelyou Greenmarket along the way (see below).
Happy Easter if you celebrate, and Happy Weekend to you all!
