Yesterday morning, I went over the bridge to spent some time in Brooklyn. It was the first time for me to visit Brooklyn and it's totally different from Manhattan. I walked around on Atlantic Av., Smith Street, Court Street and Lafayette and it felt like a village. Cozy small shops and fancy restaurants, is what you can find here. I very much enjoyed the Smith & Butler store and Brooklyn Circus. For antiques it's great to go to Darr and City Foundry both on Atlantic Av. I was lucky there was also a fleamarket in the former Savings Bank. Here you could find some industrial pieces and Japanese guys with American workwear.
