Browsing the Brooklyn Flea

After the fabulous breakfast at Bubby's, all we had to do was cross the street to reach the local farmer's market:

Immediately past the farmer's market was the path that would take us to the Brooklyn flea held directly under the Brooklyn Bridge. The cool part of the path was the fact that it even had a bit of shoreline - for some reason, I never associated urban NYC and Brooklyn with beaches!
Of course, this spot was perfect for photo ops - Andrew and Amanda:

Our brunch companions, Camie and James:

And to switch it up, with the Brooklyn bridge in the background!

One of the most interesting things we saw at the flea market - a huge pile of creepy pitchforks! What the heck would people be using these for? A mob crowd of townspeople conducting a witch hunt?

A shot that shows how the flea market is literally located beneath the Brooklyn bridge:

I am SO going there the next time I come to NYC. (Camie, take note.) Good food AND pitchforks.

Haha, I highly recommend it! Just watch out for the mob crowd.
