On June 14th, Brownstoner's Brooklyn Flea will be expanding to Brooklyn Bridge Park. The Fort Greene Flea will stay put 'til November, and the Dumbo pop-up will close at the end of May. From the press release sent out by the Brooklyn Bridge Park Development Corporation: "'It’s an honor to be expanding The Flea to a second location with the stature and history of the Brooklyn Bridge,' said Brooklyn Flea Co-Founder Jonathan Butler. 'In these tumultuous economic times, it’s also particularly gratifying to create another opportunity for the hundreds of small businesses in the Flea family to continue to grow.'” [Brownstoner]
