NYC pt 3, Brooklyn

Hello there,
I guess this will be the last post about NYC and it will be about Brooklyn (DUMBO and Williamsburg included).
The borough of Brooklyn is definitively my fav one: lower buildings than in Manhattan (and I am not thinking about the skyscrapers) it is greener and very calm.
We went there a couple of times on Sunday and once during the week.

On Sunday there are flea markets in Brooklyn: check this website 'cause the location changes during the year (Winter to Summer), we have been to both the Williamsburg and the Fort Green.

Williamsburg
This neighborhood is perfect to have a look of Manhattan from the other side of the East River, the flea market is beautiful and if the weather is fine you can eat something in the park, actually the park is the same where the last Renegade Craft Fair was made.

Bar/restaurants

Tiny Empire: small batches of raw, organic, unpasteurized juices that are packed with big flavor and essential nutrients.

The burger guru: lovely and tasty veggie burgers, but also hamburger for not-vegetarians...

Shops

Awoke vintage: The Awoke collection is handpicked from across the globe, with careful consideration given to each and every piece.

Artists and Flea: On the way to the East River State Park you'll find it (N7th St between Kent and Wythe Ave)

Earwax: if you are looking for LP such as Rock-A-Fella

Verameat: hand-crafted jewels made with fine materials as ecologically sound recycled silver and pure 14k gold.

DUMBO
We have been there to visit the Etsy headquarters in Brooklyn, since Etsy is a sponsor of the Band Loch Markt project. I must say it has been a beautiful experience we had and Eatsy (lunch with the team) and we visited the offices.

Dumbo looks like an industrial part of the district, but it reveals few surprises. It is where the Brooklyn bridge arrives.

Shops

West Elm: quite famous because of the partnership with Etsy, this is a cool shop for forniture and homedecor.

Zakkacorp: an amazing shop managed by a superkind Japanese guy plenty of books of graphic design, architecture, magazines and toys.

Brooklyn
One place where you must go is prospect park and all the surroundings.
Then if you have already been to the MoMA, you can use a second time the tickets to get to the MoMA PS1.
