We just now noticed this Daily News article on the Brooklyn Flea kerfluffle, which reports that "Angry encounters over parking between shoppers and local churchgoers nearly ended in blows yesterday." And though the piece makes it seem like the issue has really polarized the community, not everyone is taking sides. 'After church I like to walk down [to the flea market] and eat a taco,' said Ghisaine Cayard, 62, of Fort Greene." God bless. [NY Daily News; Previously]
