Spend a Couple Minutes »Jane’s Carousel

56 Water Street  Brooklyn

This morning was perfect for an impromptu trip to Jane’s Carousel in Dumbo with Van’s buddies Leo and Everett.

The ferry is really the easiest way to travel the city with small kids and we were lucky enough to catch them just in time.

The carousel, a lovely classic that was painstakingly restored by artist Jane Walentas is set in a glass structure along the water offering nice views of the city.
Great 4th of July activity.

Spend a Couple Hours »Brooklyn Flea, DUMBO

brooklyn flea dumboSundays at 22 Water Street

It’s taken me years to make it to the Brooklyn Flea market, and we really couldn’t have chosen a nicer Autumn day for it. The golden sun over the bridge really brought out the hues in all the Native American blankets, fresh baked macaroons and taxidermy that abounded.

I had very little cash on me, which was probably a good thing for my finances, because I could have surely found lots of vintage items for myself and Jim. For the five I had in my pocket I did walk away with a great girl soul pop CD compiled by einsteinorockafeller@gmail. On another trip I’d be sure to bring more money and an appetite – the chocolates, baked goods, and lobster rolls all looked delicious.

The market takes place every weekend, Sunday in Dumbo, Saturday in Fort Greene, but make sure that if you are driving or taking a long train ride that you’ve looked up the correct Brooklyn Flea market. We ended up initially driving to a lonely lot in Park Slope with not much more than incense burners being hocked on the asphalt.
