FORT GREENE FLEA MARKET


On a nice sunny day, walking towards Fort Greene, i had the nice surprise to see that the Fort Greene Brooklyn flea was opened again.

A walking distance from home, i always like to walk by there on weekends and hunt for antiques. They have a good selections of furnitures, books, vintage clothes and little accessories.

Opens every saturday from 10am to 5pm.

C to Lafayette Ave. G to Clinton-Washington Ave. B/D/Q/N/R/2/3/4/5 to Atlantic Ave.-Pacific St


THE KILLS


Two weeks ago i went to see the Kills at Warsaw in Brooklyn . I got the tickets almost a year ago and as the show got cancelled last year, the venue was rescheduled to this year. They took over Warsaw for two night in a row.

I didn't get disappointed and the show was pretty good.

I've seen them playing years ago in Paris, as that time it was only the two of them on stage. This time they had a few people playing with them but it wasn't really obvious as they were a bit hiding at the back.

The music was good and i liked some new songs from the last album, although i really love the old ones that sounds more raw and rock.

Sexy and wild on stage, the duo shared their amazing energy.

SAMURAI PAPA


A few monts ago, Samurai Papa has opened a new location in Brooklyn.

As i always heard that Samurai Mama in Williamsburg was one of the japanese of New York, i was pretty happy to hear that it will open in my neighborhood in Bed Stuy.
You can go and eat at the restaurant but you will have to stand at the bar as the there are no seats.

The menu has a nice selection of traditional meals and i always have the vegetable ramen. Fresh and delicious, it comes with a get a side of dashi broth to dilute the ramen broth when you take away.

NEW YORK TRANSIT MUSEUM


A few weeks ago i went to the New York Transit Museum retracing the urban public transportation history.

I wasn’t sure what to expect but i was sure i’d like the vintage archives a lot.
You can see the evolution of cars, turnstiles, tokens, maps and more. There is as much as read as to look at.

I loved the old subways cars on the lower level, it shows all the trains from different eras.

You can go in and sit inside, it’s great to see the evolution in terms of aesthetic, use and colors. The 1900’s and 1960’s ones are pretty great.

I wish the trains would be back to an olschool look and colors, i’m sure it will make my commute so much nicer!
